JRC launches new Innovation Radar tool
The European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) has announced the launch of the Innovation Radar tool – a data-driven online tool to help match innovators with those who can help get their innovations to market. The Innovation Radar provides an intuitive interface to identify high-potential innovations and the innovators behind them in EU-funded R&I projects. It is a policy tool for innovation management and commercialisation, designed to connect innovators in EU RDI projects and external stakeholders, such as investors, technology scouts or incubators.With its real-time data collection, it allows for the analysis of EU-funded R&I projects.
When presenting the new tool on 10 April 2018, Tibor Navracsics, Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth & Sport, responsible for the JRC said: "Matching European innovations with entrepreneurs to exploit their full potential is fundamentally a data challenge. The European Commission's Joint Research Centre offered its big data and knowledge management expertise to create the Innovation Radar. This tool will enable us to increase the return on EU investment into research and innovation, and make it more transparent and accountable."
The Innovation Radar tool can be accessed via the web or as a Smartphone app.
