FPdGi Awards

The awards seek to recognise the career of young people between 16 and 35 years old and an organisation from the EU that has shown outstanding entrepreneurial capacity in innovative projects

The FPdGi is launching the Princess of Girona Foundation Awards with the aim of promoting and fostering initiative and effort, scientific research and artistic creativity, solidarity and the development of talent in young entrepreneurs and innovators who are driven to build a more just world in a globalised setting, and who have the capacity to take risks and the necessary motivation to bring about changes in society.

A total of five awards will be presented: four individual prizes for young people (aged between 16 and 35) who undertake a project, launch a business, or begin an endeavour, especially one that involves difficulty or risk, that is capable of creatively inducing positive changes in society, and another prize for an organisation that works for young people, especially in fostering entrepreneurial spirit, employability and workplace integration, education and academic success, vocation and talent.
