EEPA 2022 – Investing in Entrepreneurial Skills

We have already introduced you to the national winners in Category 1 [1] of this year’s European Enterprise Promotion Awards (EEPA) that have made it to the next stage of the competition. Today it is the turn of Category 2 – Investing in Entrepreneurial Skills [2]. In total, 48 projects from this year’s 176 participating projects have been selected to advance to the European stage of the competition, including seven projects in Category 2.

EEPA Category 2: Investing in Entrepreneurial Skills recognises initiatives that improve entrepreneurial and managerial skills. This year, the national winners come from seven different countries and they will be competing for a place on the final European shortlist, to be determined by the EEPA 2022 jury [3].


So, let’s take a look at the shortlisted projects in Category 2. As we already mentioned in our post on the Category 1 winners – the projects selected by the Portuguese national coordinators will be announced only in September.

All the EEPA national winners will receive invitations to the Awards Ceremony at the annual SME Assembly in November, where the winners in each category will be announced. This year the event will be co-hosted by the Czech Presidency of the Council of the European Union and the European Commission. At the SME Assembly, the jury will also announce the winner of the Jury’s Grand Prize. The winner can be from any category and the prize goes to the entry considered the most creative and inspiring entrepreneurship initiative in Europe.
