"Innovation Radar puts the spotlight on the excellence of the Horizon 2020 innovators competing for this prize. It shows how EU funding is helping these brilliant innovators in transforming technology and science into tangible benefits for all Europeans. In the next programme, Horizon Europe, we propose to provide them with even more support so they can fulfil their potential and bring their ideas and products to market."
