APPLICATION DEADLINE: SEPTEMBER 24TH, 2020.
We are delighted to inform you that the Geneva Centre For Security Policy (GCSP) and its Geopolitics and Global Futures Programme are now accepting applications for the 2020 GCSP Prize for Innovation in Global Security.
The winners (first, second and third place) will be selected by a panel of judges consisting of renowned practitioners from international organisations, governments and the private sector, based on the following criteria:
- Dedication to sustainable global security
- Preservation of human dignity, security and justice
- Creativity and Originality
The prize for the application coming in first position is CHF 10’000 and a certificate of excellence. The two other finalist applications will receive a certificate of recognition.
The winners (first, second and third place) will be announced publicly during an online event to be held in November 2020.
The prize would help fund projects, while providing increased international visibility for the participant’s work. It is part of the Centre’s Creativity and Innovation Initiative, and is meant to stimulate forward-thinking and creative solutions to current issues in international security.
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 grassroots initiatives.
