About the Innovation Radar Prize
The Innovation Radar Prize 2017 recognises and champions excellence in new technologies and innovations, from EU-funded research and innovation projects. The innovators come from every corner of Europe: there are small and medium enterprises, university teams, cross-border research teams, spin-offs and start-ups. During 2 pitching sessions on the morning of Nov 9th at ICT Proposers Day 2017, the 20 finalists pitch their innovations to a jury of investors and professionals active in Europe's startup ecosystem. The 20 finalists are those who were in the top 4 of each category in terms of votes secured in the public vote.
