For those who feel more than responsible and passionate for Corporate Learning.
In order to make the European economy more efficient and responsible, an initiative group involved in the HRM Expo has established an award that distinguishes ideas that have a pan-European effects and provide new approaches to corporate learning. With the “Leonardo - European Corporate Learning Award“ people are honoured who have initiated and put into practice “beacon projects“ for European education and have thus become benchmarks for other participants throughout Europe, in particular:
- through innovations in the field of “corporate learning”, whose impact extends to other firms and sectors (keywords: knowledge- and talent-management, knowledge partnerships, training and e-learning concepts, life-long learning)
- through services to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and intercultural cohesion in Europe, which serve as examples and have a broader impact, which contribute significantly towards growth and employment in the spirit of the “Europe 2020” Lisbon follow-up strategy.
In 2010, the first “Leonardo – European Corporate Learning Award” was awarded to Prof. Dr. Jacques Delors, former President of the European Commission, for his efforts to anchor the community goals of a European educational policy within the framework of the Maastricht treaties, the UNESCO proclamation for education in the 21st century: The treasures within "Learning to know, Learning to do, Learning to live together, Learning to be. Winner in 2011 was Jimmy Wales, Co-Founder of Wikipedia for brining the wisdom of crowds to centre-stage.
Since 2012 there have been three partly overlapping categories of the Leonardo Award, which is actually no coincidence. The award emphasizes the unique components of each of the award-winning education innovations, which are unified by the Leonardo's holistic spirit:
Leonardo – Thought Leadership
Leonardo - Company Transformation
Leonardo – Crossing Borders
