For hundreds of years, European inventors have created new products, services and business models, improving the way people around the world live and work. The #HiddenInventors campaign aims to celebrate European inventors - past, present and future—putting the spotlight on inventors few of us have heard of, but whose inventions we all know and use.

 

Give our great inventors the recognition they deserve and help us inspire the next generation to shape the future of Europe. Join our celebration of the Hidden Inventors!

Billboards Winning Ideas

In 2021 we visited schools and presented the Hidden Inventors campaign to over 600 teenagers from all over Europe. Over 150 of them participated in a competition sending their billboards ideas to celebrate inventors. The best 5 billboards have been printed and placed all around Brussels to raise awareness with The European Parliament and the The European Commission Policy Makers on the importance of inventors and inventiveness.
