13 projects to be funded under Fast Track to Innovation scheme
On 25 April 2019, the European Commission published the results of the latest round of the Fast Track to Innovation (FTI) under the EIC pilot. 13 projects with a total of €33.12 million were selected for funding. The 13 projects involving 54 partners in 17 countries will receive around €2 million each. The range of projects includes recycling technology for rubber from old tyres, a magnetic ink barcode reader for anti-counterfeiting purposes, next generation photovoltaic windows, and a neuro-prosthesis that allows amputees to feel sensory feedback from the prosthesis. The most sucessful countries are Spain (11), Germany (7), and France (6).
The Fast Track to Innovation is a bottom-up measure promoting innovative activities at the close-to-the-market stage under the European Innovation Council pilot.
