Throughout the years EUNIS has awarded the best in European Higher Education IT. Three awards: Eunis Elite Award, Jens Dørup E-Learning Award and Congress Best Paper Award are given each year.

In addition to these three awards, EUNIS may act as a joint partner of other Higher Education IT associations, like e. g. the Vietsch Foundation, AVIXA or others. With the agreement of their authors, papers submitted at EUNIS events, especially the Congress, can be transmitted by the EUNIS Scientific Committee to these EUNIS partners, who at their deliberation can nominate them for their own awards. This is done by EUNIS as a mere mediator on a non-binding basis. In no case, EUNIS will directly award a monetary prize.

EUNIS Dørup E-learning Award

The EUNIS Dørup E-learning Award is given for the outstanding and innovative application of information technology (IT) in an educational setting. It was founded in commemoration of former member of the EUNIS Board of Directors, Jens Dørup.

The award is organised by the EUNIS Learning and Teaching Special Interest Group. The call for submissions for the EUNIS Dørup E-learning Award is done at the same time as the general call for papers for the annual Congress and the winner is selected by the Dørup Award Judging Panel. The award is not a monetary award, but the winner will receive a special certificate and a framed print of a painting by Danish artist Maj Dørup (daughter of Jens Dørup).
