2021 GCSP Prize for Innovation in Global Security

Deadline: 23 September 2021
Open to: anyone wishing to contribute to Global Security
Award/Prizes: CHF 10,000 ( $ 10,883)

The prize is awarded for projects by any individual, or group of individuals, or organisation (from private or public sectors), which contribute to global security, and have been submitted for consideration according to these rules and regulations. No more than one application per applicant is allowed.

The winners (first, second and third place) will be selected by a panel of judges consisting of renowned practitioners from international organizations, governments and the private sector, based on the following criteria:

  • Dedication to sustainable global security
  • Preservation of human dignity, security and justice
  • Creativity and Originality

The winners (first, second and third place) will be announced publicly during our yearly event to be held in November 2021.

The prize would help fund projects, while providing increased international visibility for the participant’s work. It is part of the Centre’s Creativity and Innovation Initiative and is meant to stimulate forward-thinking and creative solutions on current issues of international security.

Applications may come from any country, but the projects should go beyond national borders in their reach or thinking, and must seek to address global security in innovative ways or through new ideas. A broad range of projects could qualify for consideration, including, but not limited to, technological and conceptual innovations, original research or grassroot initiatives.

The prize for the application coming in first position is CHF 10’000 and a certificate of excellence. The two other finalist applications will receive a certificate of recognition.
