The Innovation Radar is an initiative supported by the European Commission focussing on the identification of high potential innovations and the key innovators behind them in the 7th Framework Programme (FP7), the Competitiveness and Innovation Programme (CIP) and Horizon 2020 ICT projects. It supports innovators by suggesting a range of targeted actions to assist them in fulfilling their potential in the market. It is an initiative that involves:
- Assessing the maturity of innovations developed within the FP7 and H2020 projects and identifying high potential innovators and innovations;
- Providing guidance during the project duration in terms of the most appropriate steps to reach the market;
- Supporting innovators through EU (and non-EU) funded entrepreneurship initiatives to cover specific needs concerning networking, access to finance, Intellectual Property Rights, etc.
The EU-funded innovations identified by the Innovation Radar are available at this online tool.
