The awards are organised by EURid, the European Commission-appointed organisation in charge of .eu domains, of which there are currently more than 3.6 million. The goal of the awards is to enhance the visibility of innovative and impactful .eu websites.
“Mobility is at the heart of our mission”
In an initial stage, 139 nominees collected thousands of user votes to make to the finalists’ stage. An expert jury then picked the winners for each of the five categories.
The “Laurels” award was presented by member of the European Parliament, Patrick Breyer.
“As a truly European company, we are thrilled and humbled to receive this award,” said Study.EU founder and CEO, Gerrit Bruno Blöss.
“It’s an honour to be recognised like this.”
“As always, the jury had a very difficult time coming to a decision, as all of the finalists’ websites were inspiring in their own ways…the winners should be very proud,” commented Giovanni Seppia, EURid External Relations manager.
All award winners will also receive a two-month promotional campaign on billboards at Brussels Airport.
“We are really excited about this opportunity,” added Blöss.
“Mobility is at the heart of our mission. The more students we can inspire to go abroad, the better!”
