The awards are handed out annually to honour women striving to advance the European project in their professional or private capacity. The role of women in the European project remains largely unrecognised, and the awards highlight the contribution of women in promoting and advancing European issues, and to increase the presence and involvement of women in debates about Europe and its future.

Celebrating its eighth edition, the most recent edition continued to recognise, celebrate and inspire women of all backgrounds. Last year's edition of the Women of Europe Awards ceremony was held at the BELvue Museum, Brussels, on Thursday, 9 November 2023.
