EC Innovation Radar

The Innovation Radar is a EC initiative to identify high potential innovations and innovators in EU-funded research and innovation projects. Its main goal is to allow every citizen, public official, professional and business person to discover the outputs of EU innovation funding and give them a chance to seek out innovators.

This Innovation Radar platform includes information about EU-funded innovations from high-quality projects and makes it visible and accessible to the public. Moreover, by providing greater access to such information the platform hopes to encourage the development of a dynamic ecosystem of incubators, entrepreneurs, funding agencies and investors that can help get EU-funded innovations faster to market.
In recent years many great EU-funded innovations identified by the Innovation Radar have also been championed as part of the Innovation Radar prize scheme.
