The Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP) and its Geopolitics and Global Futures Programme, under the umbrella of its Creativity and Innovation Initiative, invites applications from across the globe for Prize for Innovation in Global Security 2016, established to recognise deserving individuals or organisations that have an innovative approach to addressing international security challenges.
The prize is designed to reach across all relevant disciplines and fields. It seeks to reward the most inspiring, innovative and ground-breaking contribution of the year, whether this comes in the form of an initiative, invention, research publication, or organisation.
With this initiative, the GCSP intends to foster creativity and innovation across its thematic programmes and fields of activities. It aims to create spaces where different cultures, domains, disciplines and generations can interact in order to gain new insights and generate new ideas.
The prize consists of a cash award of CHF 10’000, a ceremonial awards dinner in Geneva, and all travel expenses for the winner.
- This is an international competition and applications are accepted from anywhere in the world. Applications are welcome from either individuals or groups, from both the public and private sectors.
- Proposals can be wide-ranging in scope but should include a description of the contribution with a focus on how it is novel, and on its significance to sustainable global security.
- The 2016 GCSP Prize for Innovation in Global Security will be announced at an award ceremony in November 2016.
