Brussels, Belgium, 25 November 2019. Study.eu, the Hamburg-based study choice platform for Europe, wins the .eu Web Award in the “Laurels” category. The awards are organised every year 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 .eu Web Awards is to enhance the visibility of innovative, beautiful, and impactful .eu websites. In an initial stage, 139 nominees collected thousands of user votes to make it 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,” says founder & CEO Gerrit Bruno Blöss. “It’s an honour to be recognised like this.”
Other winners include Old-Love.eu, a European art project, and the Green European Journal, Europe’s leading political ecology magazine. The ceremony was hosted by BBC news presenter Sally Bundock and included a musical performance of UK singer-songwriter James Morrison.
All award winners will also receive a 2-month promotional campaign at Brussels Airport, on billboards at gates A45/A46. “We are really excited about this opportunity,” says Blöss. “Mobility is at the heart of our mission. The more students we can inspire to go abroad, the better!”
Study.eu is the gateway to universities in Europe. As the most-visited study choice platform for Europe, it reaches more than a million students per year. The Hamburg-based company connects students from around the world with European universities, enabling them to pursue the academic path they aspire. Study.eu closely cooperates with institutions of higher education as well as governmental organisations throughout Europe.
