The European Award for Lifelong Passions is a prize conceived to discover extraordinary people and their passions. A special prize is dedicated to the Passion for Scientific and Technological Innovation. The total prize money is 26,000 Euros. Entries are open until the 16th October 2012.
The European Award for Lifelong Passions acts as a vessel designed to uncover and acknowledge human passions of all kinds. The award is primarily aimed at amateurs, but a special prize is reserved for professionals who cultivate a lifelong passion for scientific and technological innovation.
“We are looking for builders of fantastic architectures, designers with personal dreams, entrepreneurs pursuing impossible challenges and explorers of scientific novelties. Throughout history there are fantastic examples of enthusiasts: extraordinary people, who breathe deep, taking energy from what surrounds them” – this is how Denis Isaia, founder and artistic director of the Award, describes the project.
