Technology Improvement and R&D: This category includes innovative projects to improve paper recycling technology.


Eligible projects, initiatives or campaigns will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Relevance and originality
  • Achievements
  • Possibility to reproduce the project
  • Cost effectiveness


The award ceremony, where the winners will be announced, will take place in the European Parliament in Brussels on 21 January 2020.
