Horizon Impact Award 2022 is the European Commission’s initiative to recognize and celebrate outstanding projects that have used their results to provide value for society.

The award aims to show the wider socio-economic benefits of EU investment in research and innovation. It enables individuals or teams to showcase their best practices and achievements. This will encourage other beneficiaries to use and manage their results in the best way possible.
