The University of Virginia Darden School of Business Institute for Business in Society and Concordia have created
the P3 Impact Award to recognize and honor the leading
public-private partnerships that are improving communities — and
the world — in the most impactful ways.
For this award, a P3 refers to any cross-sector collaboration
that features public, private, nongovernmental (NGO) or nonprofit
organizations addressing societal problems.
Applications are now being accepted through 30 April 2014. At
least one winner will be selected from an international pool of
applicants in July. All applications will be reviewed by an
independent panel of esteemed judges.
The P3 Impact Award will debut at the Concordia Summit 29-30
September 2014 in New York City. An outcome from the summit will be
a publication that features leading practices and actionable
insights from the top applicants. This report, released after the
conference, will also be used to develop teaching cases and other
materials that extend the impact and practical value of the
content. Award winners will receive a full scholarship to attend a
week-long Darden Executive Education course, international publicity and
the opportunity to showcase their partnerships.
Applicants must meet the definition for a "public-private
partnership," which refers to any cross-sector collaboration that
features public, private, NGO or nonprofit organizations addressing
societal problems. Criteria and the application form can be found
at the P3 Impact Award website.
- Strength of the cross-sector partnership
- Measurable impacts
- Economic and/or social benefits
- Improved service delivery
- Innovative features
- Financial effectiveness
The P3 Impact Award aims to raise awareness and develop content
on impactful and leading practices in the P3 arena by highlighting
the stories of top partnerships each year. The competition
highlights leading practices, delivers practical learning and
generates a database of information relevant to P3.
