The Triple E Awards are a global recognition of efforts towards the quest for entrepreneurship and engagement in higher education. It is the first award to focus specifically on different dimensions of the universities' third mission. Implemented regionally, the Triple E Awards aim to foster change in universities and to emphasise their role in their communities and ecosystems. Next to its focus on entrepreneurship and engagement, the 2020 African Triple E Awards will put a spotlight on sustainability in higher education, with 3 awards specifically addressing the issue.
Submission is open to all higher education institutions (including colleges) in Africa. Awardees will be selected through a two-stage process: after the shortlisting of the top 5 entries in each category, additional information need to be submitted which will serve as the basis for the final ranking of the entries.

Due to COVID-19 and its global impact, the 2020 A.Y.E. Convention has been postponed until further notice. In line with this, the 2020 African Triple E Awards are not taking place as planned in Akure, Nigeria, but have been moved to a virtual celebration of Africa's most outstanding institutions, individuals and initiatives on entrepreneurship and engagement in higher education. Please keep an eye on our Ceremony page for updates on the implementation of the digital Ceremony. While we are sad to miss the opportunity to meet in person, we are looking forward to hosting a Ceremony that will be attended by academics and practitioners from all around Africa and beyond.
