The Triple E Awards are a global recognition of efforts towards the quest for entrepreneurship and engagement in higher education. It is the first award to focus specifically on different dimensions of the universities' third mission. The Triple E Awards aim to foster change in universities and to emphasize their role in their communities and ecosystems.

This global event will take place from 26-29 June 2023 in Barcelona (Spain) and will gather more than 400 university leaders, managers, practitioners and academics. So far, entries from 51 countries have been submitted! Find all the information on the website: https://www.triple-e-awards.com

As Award Patrons of the Triple E Awards, we encourage all GUNi members to submit your entry and join us at the Awards Ceremony in Barcelona. In addition, you will be able to benefit from two side events: the ACEEU Stakeholders Forum 2023 and the Triple Helix Conference

Regional Awards: The Triple E Awards acknowledge regional differences regarding the development of the third mission of universities, specially in terms of entrepreneurship and engagement. Therefore, the majority of Awards are not global, but implemented in different regions around the world.

Diverse categories: Aiming to capture a wide variety of entrepreneurship and engagement aspects in higher education, the Triple E Awards allow individuals and institutions to submit entries in a broad range of categories.
