How to participate?

National, regional, or local authorities or public-private partnerships from all EU countries plus Iceland, Serbia, and Turkey can participate in the European Enterprise Promotion Awards.

Who can participate?

Eligible entities include national organisations, towns, cities, regions, and communities, as well as public-private partnerships between public authorities and entrepreneurs, educational programmes, and business organisations.

Cross-border initiatives will be accepted as long as they have been nominated jointly by all countries involved.

Selection process

The competition has two stages. Applicants must first compete at national level to be eligible to compete at European level. For the national competition, each country will select two entries to be nominated for the European competition.

A shortlist of nominees will be chosen by a European jury. All nominees from the national and European competitions will be invited to attend the awards ceremony. The ceremony recognises the winners for their efforts and gives them the opportunity to present themselves in a pan-European environment.

The closing dates for entries to the national selection are set by each country. For further information on how to get involved in the future, contact your national representative:
