Submit Your Project Today!

In 2015, under the umbrella of its Creativity and Innovation Initiative, the GCSP and its Geopolitics and Global Futures Programme established a prize in order to recognise deserving individuals or organisations that have an innovative approach to addressing international security challenges.

 

The prize is designed to reach across all relevant disciplines and fields. It seeks to reward the most inspiring, innovative and ground-breaking contribution of the year, whether this comes in the form of an initiative, invention, research publication, or organisation. A broad range of projects could qualify for consideration, including, but not limited to, technological and conceptual innovations, original research or grassroots initiatives.

The prize consists of a cash award of CHF 10’000. The prize will be awarded to the winner at a Ceremony in Geneva. In addition to the Prize, all travel to and attendance at the Ceremony will be paid by the GCSP.

The deadline for applications is 26 September 2019 at 18:00 UTC+2. The winner will be announced in November 2019.
