Innsbruck International



for Services to Europe at the Regional and Local Level

The Emperor-Maximilian-Prize of the City of Innsbruck and the Region of Tyrol recognises outstanding achievements in the field of European local and/or regional politics and has been awarded since 1997. 

In the course of the preparations for the Emperor Maximilian commemorative year in 2019, the prize was fundamentally redesigned and is now allocated biennially to projects and initiatives which put into practice the European idea beyond local, regional and national borders. The aim is to honour and support projects from all areas of life that make a special contribution to European cohesion.

In 2021, the prize will be awarded under the motto “Facing challenges together – for a stronger Europe” and will give special consideration to projects that have found ways to stay united in Europe despite adverse COVID-19 circumstances. 

In March 2021, an international jury of experts selected the winning project from the 56 applications received from 14 European countries. The winner will be announced at the award ceremony on 14 October 2021 in Innsbruck.

As part of this year's Emperor Maximilian Award, the City of Innsbruck and the Province of Tyrol invite all interested citizens to gain insights into the work of the winning project and four other exciting initiatives at the citizens’ event "Experience (y)our Europe.
