Innovation Radar Prize 2018: vote your favourite innovation

  • economy

From 29 October to 12 November the EU citizens are encouraged to vote for their favourite scientific and technological breakthroughs among 50 nominees who have been developing innovations through EU-funded projects.

Citizens can now vote for the 20 innovators they think most deserve the Innovation Radar Prize 2018. The finalists come from every corner of Europe, from SMEs, universities and start-ups. They have been identified through the European Commission's Innovation Radar, a data-driven engine that aims to identify high potential innovations and the key innovators behind them.
Nominees are grouped into five categories:
  • Tech for Society – recognising technologies impacting society and citizens
  • Excellent Science - cutting-edge science underpinning tomorrow's technological advances
  • Industrial & Enabling Tech - the next generation of tech and components supporting industry
  • Best Young SME - recognising dynamic young SMEs (established in 2013 or later) who are developing great innovations with EU-funding
  • Best early stage innovation - recognising innovations showing promise at early stages of EU-funded projects
This public vote will decide on 4 innovators from each of the 5 categories. The 20 finalists will get to pitch their plans taking their innovation to market to a jury of experts at the ICT 2018 event in Vienna on 5 December 2018.
