Innovation in Politics Institute

The Innovation in Politics Institute has created a Coping with the Crisis platform to collect, document and share innovative and successful practices in response to the effects of the coronavirus crisis across Europe and beyond, with more than 300 examples of such best practices identified so far. Innovative measures to cope with the crisis can be shared with the Institute via their dedicated page.

The Institute has also launched the Innovation in Politics Awards, which aim to highlight the commitment of European politicians who have distinguished themselves in an innovative way in several fields (quality of life, economy, ecology, education, democracy, digitalisation, human rights, regional and community development, etc.). This year, the Awards can be addressed to personalities who have been involved in the fight against the COVID-19 crisis.
