Awards ceremony of the 2nd edition of the Social Innovation Competition, in memory of Diogo Vasconcelos

Michel Barnier, Member of the EC in charge of Internal Market and Services and Industry and Entrepreneurship (pro term), awarded three European Social Innovation prizes to ground-breaking ideas to create new types of work and address social needs. The winning projects aim to help disadvantaged women by employing them to create affordable and limited fashion collections, create jobs in the sector of urban farming, and convert abandoned social housing into learning spaces and entrepreneurship labs.
In January 2009, Diogo Vasconcelos chaired a Business Panel on Future EU innovation policy to provide input to the next European Commission, in the context of post 2010 Lisbon strategy. He was the Chairman of the Social Innovation eXchange (SIX), a global community of over 5000 individuals and organizations committed to promoting social innovation.
