Innovation Radar report: Identifying Innovations and Innovators with High Potential in ICT FP7, CIP & H2020 Projects

Article
The Innovation Radar (IR) is a DG Connect support initiative that focuses on the identification of high-potential innovations in the ICT FP7, CIP and H2020 projects and the key organization in delivering these innovations to the market.

The JRC science and policy report documents the details of the IR methodology and the results of its first application. The results of the pilot exercise show that ICT FP7 projects deliver a substantial number of innovations.

On average, there are nearly two new or substantially improved products or services developed within each ICT FP7 project. However, further nurturing is needed to bring them to the market and exploit their commercial potential.
