The “Altiero Spinelli Prize for Outreach: Spreading Knowledge about Europe” will reward outstanding contributions that effectively and objectively communicate the EU – its founding values, its history, its action, its key benefits and empowerments- to the citizens, enhance the citizens’ understanding of the EU, broaden the ownership of the European project and build trust in the EU’s capacity to hold the promise of a better future for all.

Priorities and funded actions:

– Promoting knowledge of the EU and critical reflection on the past, present and future of the EU to non-specialist audiences and to the general public ;
– Enhancing understanding by citizens of the values, objectives, key benefits and empowerments of the European integration process, of the enormous accomplishments of the EU, of the cost of non-Europe; also of failures, contradictions and dilemmas faced in the process of European integration so far ;
– Proposing, testing and assessing innovative approaches and materials that European and national policy makers, practitioners, civil society organisations and institutions in various fields can use to better inform, educate, inspire and empower citizens to develop positive and positively critical European identities and sense of belonging

– Prizes will be awarded to the most attractive, non-conventional, user-friendly, evidencebased, and myth-busting works that achieve the objectives set above and that are suitable for outreach to a variety of audiences
