The first edition of the Fundación MAPFRE Social Innovation Awards has come to a close. Of the nearly 500 projects that entered the competition, three were chosen – one for each category – as worthy winners of the 30,000 euros prize money, which will enable them to greatly boost the development of their initiatives.

It has been an extraordinary experience: the overwhelming response to the call for applications; the tremendous quality of the competing projects; and the drive and motivation of the participants making us even more committed to this wonderful project.

The second edition is already underway.
