The Geneva Center For Security Policy (GCSP) and its Geopolitics and Global Futures Programme are now accepting applications for the 2017 GCSP Prize for Innovation in Global Security. Do you have a relevant project or proposal with an innovative approach to addressing international security challenges? Apply for the GCSP Prize, before 27 September 2017. The winner receives a cash award of CHF 10’000, and all travel expenses for the winner to attend the award ceremony in Geneva.
The prize is designed to reach across all relevant disciplines. It 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.
The winner will be chosen by a panel of judges consisting of renowned practitioners from international organisations, governments and the private sector, who will also attend the ceremony. 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.
