2022 Klaus J. Jacobs Best Practice Prizes

On 30 September 2022, the Jacobs Foundation will award three 2022 Klaus J. Jacobs Best Practice Prizes to trailblazers who bring forth innovative, evidence-based solutions to some of education’s biggest challenges. These prizes, worth CHF 200,000 each, recognise non-profits, businesses, and social ventures that demonstrate outstanding achievement in advancing learning and education. The organizations and programs were assessed and selected based on their application of scientific evidence, use of a clear results framework, and their potential for scale up and implementation around the world. 

This year, for the first time, the 10 shortlisted organisations will convene for a co-creation event in Zurich on 1 October 2022, where they will exchange knowledge and ideas on advancing learning. They will have the opportunity to partner with their fellow finalists to develop proposals for new projects. Two concepts will receive follow-on funding of up to CHF 150,000 each.

In the run-up to the awards ceremony and the co-creation event in Zurich, we will unveil one of our ten finalists each week.
