EUNIS Award for Best Overall AV-enabled Education Space

The EUNIS Award for Best Overall AV-enabled Education Space recognizes innovative use of audiovisual technology that results in positive results in registered higher education learning facilities, whether in classrooms for students and/or instructors or campus-wide. It celebrates great design where AV is an integral component of enabling education to take place in a given space or campus.  Both new build and re-fit are eligible, if the AV is included in the complete ideation of the space.  Spaces must take into consideration the intended use or uses of the space.
