Social challenge time: help us connect science and society

Give us the winning solution to our social challenge and you can win 30 000 euros to bring your innovative idea to life.
Through the EU’s Platform, challenge owners all over the member states are looking for innovative ideas. The Platform will reward the first rounds of selected solution providers with 30 000 euros support each! If you need help with your application and an introduction to how the Platform works, attend our local workshop and meet the first Hungarian challenge owner.
What the event will be about:

We’ll introduce the currently active Hungarian challenge, owned by the ESSRG research group. They are looking for a solution to bring research and innovation closer to citizens, businesses, NGOs and other stakeholder groups. The workshop will help clarify the challenge and also get started on brainstorming about potential solutions, collectively.
How to prepare:

Bring your innovative ideas about connecting researchers and stakeholder groups with each other, supporting their interaction and knowledge exchange. Or just bring an open mind and join in the brainstorming.

You can read the full description of the challenge (and also challenges from other countries) here:

We will also be prepared to answer your questions about the Platform and the application process if you want to submit a solution.
By participating at the event you authorize the Impact Hub Budapest to take photographs and video footage of you during the workshop and to publish, edit, alter, copy, exhibit, or distribute these photographs and video in order to promote the Social Challenges Innovation Platform project in digital and printed media.
The Social Challenges Innovation Platform project receives funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme under the Grant Agreement number 734906.
