2020 Asia-Pacific Triple E Awards

Open for submission

The premier awards for entrepreneurship and engagement in Higher Education

The submission period has ended. Many thanks to all contributors. The review results will soon be published.

Dedicated to excellence

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. Implemented regionally, the Triple E Awards aim to foster change in universities and to emphasise their role in their communities and ecosystems.

Next to its focus on entrepreneurship and engagement, the 2020 Asia-Pacific Triple E Awards will put a spotlight on sustainability in higher education, with three awards specifically addressing the issue. This emphasis on sustainability also influenced our choice for the awards ceremony location and we are very proud to be able to host you in the amazing city of Kochi in India. Join us and spend some unforgettable days in this unique city that is known for its commitment to sustainability and its leadership in green development.

Submission is open to all higher education institution (including colleges) in the Asia-Pacific region. Awardees will be selected through a two-stage process: after the shortlisting of the top 5 entries in each category, additional information need to be submitted which will serve as the basis for the final ranking of the entries.
