Every year the European Commission (Directorate-General for Energy and EASME) organises the EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) – the biggest event dedicated to renewables and efficient energy use in Europe. The 2019 edition attracted more than 3200 participants. The theme of the 2020 edition will focus on Energy for the European Green Deal and cover a series of activities with an EU-wide scope. EUSEW will take place during the last week of June (22-26 June) and include the EUSEW Policy Conference in Brussels from 23 to 25 June.

Among the Week’s highlights are the #EUSEW2020 Awards. The competition to award the year’s top projects is open until 10 February 2020!

This year, the three Award categories are:

  • Engagement: For activities that inspire and motivate citizens to make their energy habits more sustainable
  • Innovation: For EU-funded activities that demonstrate the sustainable energy transition in original and innovative ways
  • Youth: For activities carried out by people under 30

As you can see, the Innovation category is reserved for EU-funded projects. As a H2020 project coordinator, you could apply for an Award in this category. Nevertheless, feel free to apply in any category.

You can apply online until 10 February 2020. To access the application form, you must create a user on the EUSEW website beforehand.
