Sixth edition of the Fundación MAPFRE Awards for Social Innovation
We are broadening our scope of action to achieve more
Silver Economy: opportunities for senior population.
Health improvement and digital technology (e-Health).
Providing solutions to real problems is the main goal of social innovators, who through their projects contribute to meeting the social needs and demands of the public.
With them in mind, we are launching the sixth edition of the Fundación MAPFRE Social Innovation Awards, with the collaboration of IE as an academic partner, broadening our scope even further. In this edition, in addition to projects from three major regions: Brazil, the rest of Latin America and Europe, we are incorporating a new geographical area: the USA.
In this new edition, we are promoting innovative projects with enormous potential for social impact in the following categories:
- Sustainable mobility.
- Silver Economy: opportunities for senior population.
- Health improvement and digital technology (e-Health).
From all the projects submitted, 12 finalists will be chosen (3 finalists per category and per region) who will receive coaching sessions from IE University and will go on to participate in the Grand Final.
The three winning projects (one in each category) will receive 40,000 euros in cash to promote their project and will benefit from free consultancy services provided by Fundación EY (FEY), Fundación MAPFRE’s partner in this sixth edition of the awards.
In addition, the entire community of social innovators involved in our awards will be able to participate in the exchange of knowledge and expert support provided through the Red Innova innovation network.
Sign up here if you would like to receive information about our awards, events and activities.
You can find here all the relevant information to submit your application. We are governed by the principles of transparency, rigor and equal opportunities. We want the best of the best to win, and that the best get to know each other and learn from each other.
All of us share in writing the future. Social innovation unites technology with objectives that directly affect people’s wellbeing and improves their quality of life. To find out about the areas in which we want to work with you, click here and carry on reading.
The social entrepreneurs of our awards remain connected through this “network of networks” which benefits from peer support and fosters the exchange of expert knowledge, thus contributing to the social innovation ecosystem and advocating a positive impact.
We are connected. Learn from others. We are social beings by nature and the difference lies in our ability to exchange ideas. In this section you will find relevant information to reflect upon, polish your project, discover who else may be working with similar objectives to yours and how that might affect you. Everything is on the move. Keep up to date.
This adventure would not have been possible without the participation of organisations who share our ultimate goal of making this world a better place, and who agree that social innovation is an essential tool to achieve this.
