The Fundación Princesa de Girona (FPdGI) is launching a set of five awards in 2017. The awards – named the Princess of Girona Foundation awards – seek to recognise the career of young people between the ages of 16 to 35 years old and an organisation from the EU that has shown outstanding entrepreneurial capacity in innovative projects. Fundación Princesa de Girona describes the aim of the awards as being, ‘To promote and foster initiatives, scientific research, artistic creativity and the development of talent in young entrepreneurs and EU organisations who are driven to build a more just world in a globalised setting and who have the capacity to take risks to bring about changes in society’.
Four individual awards will be presented to young people who have undertaken a project, launched a business or begun an endeavour; especially one that involves difficulty, risk, and is capable of inducing positive changes in society. One award will be presented to an organisation that works for young people; especially one which fosters entrepreneurial spirit, employability, workplace integration and academic success.
