Euronews global news media network and the European Business Summit (EBS) joined forces to establish The European Leadership Awards – a prestigious and reputable awards ceremony that recognises outstanding achievements in business, politics, entrepreneurship and innovation.
The finalists of the Awards were selected through a public vote followed by a final jury verdict, thus giving everyone an opportunity to decide which candidate merits the privilege of being called a true European Leader.
In 2019, the European Leader of the Year Award was given to President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker. To see all award winners click here.
An evening gala ceremony honouring the winners of the awards takes place every year at the majestic Palais d’Egmont in Brussels on the occasion of the European Business Summit. The event is broadcast live on Euronews TV channel.
