European Young Innovators Jury Grand Jury


“The European Young Innovators combines two major perspectives in its initiative - first the commitment on the UN SDGs through Youth and the positive shaping of the future of Europe. The UN SDGs must be our measurement – in terms of what to look at and where to look. Today we are living in a completely different environment – this year’s challenges show more than ever how much digital means can offer progress and solutions. Hence, it is more important than ever to evaluate what is excellent content that really offers solutions and impact. Qualitative, local content has become the key and permanent issue. This year’s European Young Innovators present a wonderful showcase of purpose driven innovation and entrepreneurship.“ WSA Chairman Peter A. Bruck states.
