Throughout the years EUNIS has awarded the best in European Higher Education IT. The EUNIS Elite Award, Dørup Award, EUNIS Award for AV enabled learning space and Congress Best Paper Award are given each year.

In addition to these awards, EUNIS may act as a joint partner of other Higher Education IT associations. An example is our partnership with the Vietsch Foundation whereby EUNIS scientific committee can put forward project proposals which it thinks may be worthy of funding by the foundation. The final decision is made by the Veitsch Foundation.

Another example is that entries for the EUNIS Award for AV enabled learning space will be put forward for the Avixa global AV experience awards (AVXA). The final decision on these awards is made by AVIXA judges.
