Promoting and inspiring excellence
Each year, Informatics Europe presents two awards recognizing outstanding initiatives that advance the quality of research and education in Informatics in Europe.
- The Best Practices in Education Award recognizes educational initiatives across Europe that improve the quality of Informatics teaching and the attractiveness of the discipline. This award was initiated in 2011.
- The Minerva Informatics Equality Award recognizes best practices in Departments or Faculties of European Universities and Research Labs that encourage and support the careers of women in Informatics research and education. This award is first presented in 2016.
Entrants for the awards may nominate themselves or be nominated. The prestige of the Informatics Europe awards relies on the high calibre of the international award committees convened each year to review submissions. Winners are announced at an Award Ceremony during the annual European Computer Science Summit.
