Winners 2021

Competition 2021

At the fifth Annual Forum in Nice the five young finalists of PITCH YOUR PROJECT 2021 presented their ideas through videos and answered the audience’s questions on stage.

The audience chose the three winners:

  • 1. Roberta Pascolo won the 1st place and 5,000 Euro for her idea to use a virtual map to collect stories from locals about their land and its citizens.
  • 2. Martin Ferrari and Ernesto Rossini from Italy are behind the project called AlpiSECTS. The team believes that insect farming could help mitigate the effects of climate change. They received the 2nd place and 3,000 Euro.
  • 3. Six school pupils from Austria won the 3rd prize and 2,000 Euro. Their project “vollTrash” wants to create an app in order to inspire people to pick up trash by offering a reward system for ongoing trash collection.

The prizes were presented by Sławomir Tokarski, Director, European Territorial Cooperation, Macro-regions, Interreg and Programme Implementation I, in the DG REGIO of the European Commission, and Liliane Lucchesi, Regional Councilor Delegate of the French region Bourgogne-Franche-Comté.
