We are once again looking for ideas and sustainable concepts, which at the core of their activity contribute to solving societal or ecological challenges. The focus is on innovative approaches that are fundamentally new or have not yet been implemented in Styria – and thus also represent added value for the Styrian regions. The range of categories is wide: from projects in the fields of education and training or society and coexistence to topics dealing with climate protection, sustainable agriculture and resource conservation. Innovations from the fields of “Tech for Good” and economic development are also awaited. Everything that has an impact on a better future can be submitted. The call is open for individuals aged 16 and over, for companies and for non-profit organizations.

Whether it’s a rough draft or a finished business plan, all submissions received by January 14, 2024 will be presented to an expert jury. The best of the best will win €1,500 in total.
