Consequently, this year we are compiling a pool of the 35 best profiles within Europe that will become Innovators Under 35 Europe. On September 14th, the laureates will have the opportunity to participate in the Innovators Under 35 Europe Awards Ceremony to meet and gather with members of our global community which will result in high visibility in national and international media outlets and will boost their projects and/or initiatives.
