From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

The Emperor Maximilian Prize (German: Kaiser-Maximilian-Preis; full name since 2018: Emperor Maximilian Prize for Services to Europe at the Regional and Local Level.[1]) is an award by the Tyrolean regional authority and the Innsbruck municipal authority for outstanding achievements in the field of European regional and local politics.


To mark the 85th birthday of the long-standing Mayor of the City of Innsbruck and President of the Tyrolean Parliament, Alois Lugger, and in recognition of his services [2] In 1998, Jordi Pujol, the former president of Catalonia.[3] Until 2017 the Prize was awarded to 21 individuals.[4]


The decision was taken to modify the announcement and award process in order to make the prize in its overall concept even more relevant for citizens. Instead of outstanding individual achievements, the award is supposed to be targeted at projects and initiatives that employ a cooperative, creative and sustainable approach to service to the central goals of the process of European unification.[5].
