six second prizes of 30.000 EUR
ten third prizes of 17.000 EUR.
The prize is open to individuals or groups of individuals (natural persons).

Eligible participants include scientists, artists, scholars/researchers, writers, journalists and all kinds of other actors who can contribute to articulating what Europe stands for today and tomorrow and why European citizens should "fall in love with Europe" despite its imperfections.
