Winners of the 2nd Generation 3.0 Award to Be Announced on 3 May
In addition to presentations by the finalists, the event will also include talks by world-renowned experts (not only) on education.
On 3 May 2018 at 4:00 PM, the Generation 3.0 Award, which rewards the best innovative approaches to education, will be presented for the second time. Over the course of the afternoon, 14 finalists will come up on stage to present their projects, which are already bringing change to our education system.
Based on these TED-style presentations, the program’s expert committees will select a winner in each award category. The winners will be announced during the final awards ceremony, which will take place in the evening. You can look forward to fresh updates directly from the ceremony on our Facebook page.
