2022 GCSP Prize for Innovation in Global Security

Submit your idea to revolutionize Global Security and win CHF 10,000! The Prize aims to recognise outstanding projects for their innovative approaches in global security.

The organizers — Geneva Center for Security Policy (GCSP) — accept a broad range of projects such as conceptual innovations, original research, grassroots initiatives, etc…

In 2015, under the umbrella of its Creativity and Innovation Initiative, the GCSP and its Geopolitics and Global Futures Programme established a prize in order to recognise deserving individuals or organisations that have an innovative approach to addressing international security challenges.

The prize is designed to reach across all relevant disciplines and fields. It is intended to encourage and recognise excellence in contributing to new approaches to enhancing sustainable global security. A broad range of projects could qualify for consideration, including, but not limited to, technological and conceptual innovations, original research or grassroots initiatives.

A panel of judges will select the winners (first, second and third place), and the selection will be based on the following criteria:

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

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. The winners (first, second and third place) will be announced publicly during an event to be held in November 2022.
