The European Commission has awarded prizes to Europe’s most promising innovations emerging from EU funded research and innovation projects.
The 12 finalists competed in three prize categories: “Women-led innovation”, “Tech for Society” and “Innovative Science”. The final of the Innovation Radar Prize 2020 took place online on September 24, 2020 during the European Commission’s R&I Days event.
We e-pitched our EU-supported innovation to the jury: Parallelware, static code analysis specializing in parallelism to enable faster development of parallel software ensuring best practices, and we outlined our plans to push it into the market.
Finally, the Innovative Science prize was awarded to Appentra, which recognizes our cutting-edge innovation underpinning tomorrow’s technological advances. Parallelware leverages results emerging from the EPEEC and Maestro european projects.
Commissioner Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, said:
We will use Innovation Radar across all research areas to identify EU-funded innovations with market potential and steer them towards support for getting to market, that will be offered by the EIC and the new Digital Europe Programme.
We also want to use Innovation Radar to make it easier for investors and venture-builders across Europe to discover great innovators and innovations in Horizon Europe.
We will continue to champion such excellence and make it easier to discover this excellence through the public-facing Innovation Radar platform, enhancements of which will be launched in the coming months.
