The European Social Innovation Competition pays tribute to Diogo Vasconcelos.
Diogo Vasconcelos was a person of outstanding energy and charisma. He never stopped thinking ahead, developing and connecting ideas and engaging with new people. He always had one main objective in mind: to work for a better future for everyone. He was passionately committed to promote new ways of tackling societal challenges; such as climate change, unemployment and an ageing population.
His vision was that people could always learn something from one another, and through social innovation people could transform social needs and challenges into new technologies and economic opportunities.
Diogo's involvement in a wide range of European events, experts groups and projects has been invaluable. The idea for this European Social Innovation Competition came from him; because he wanted to incentivise people to come up with radical solutions! This Competition is dedicated to his memory.
