We are delighted to inform you that the Geneva Center For Security Policy (GCSP) and its Geopolitics and Global Futures Programme are now accepting applications for the 2019 GCSP Prize for Innovation in Global Security.
Do you have an innovative idea that could revolutionise the field of Global Security?
Through its Creativity and Innovation Initiative, the GCSP and its Geopolitics and Global Futures Programme established in 2015 an annual prize to recognise deserving individuals or organisations that propose an innovative approach to addressing international security challenges.
The prize seeks to reward the most inspiring and groundbreaking contribution of the year, whether this be in the form of an initiative, invention, research project, 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, and 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 prize is awarded for a project by any individual, or group of individuals, or organisation (from private or public sectors), which contributes to global security, and has been submitted for consideration according to these rules and regulations. No more than one application per applicant is allowed.
- Applications may come from any country, but the project should go beyond national borders in its reach or thinking, and must seek to address global security in innovative ways or through new ideas. A broad range of projects could qualify for consideration, including, but not limited to, technological and conceptual innovations, original research or grassroot initiatives.
- The prize is intended to encourage and recognise excellence in contributing to new approaches to enhancing sustainable global security.
- The prize is awarded by the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP), as part of its Programme for Geopolitics and Global Futures, under the Creativity and Innovation Initiative.
- Employees and staff of the GCSP, as well as their family members are not eligible participants.
