€33.5 million for last round of FTI pilot scheme awarded
The European Commission is awarding nearly €33.5 million to 17 projects, involving 80 partners in 19 countries, under the sixth and last round of the Fast Track to Innovation (FTI) pilot scheme. Each project will receive around €2 million. The aim of the FTI pilot is to bring more innovative ideas to market quicker.
Austrian companies participate in the project PIUR tUS (Tomographic 3D Ultrasound for Safe and More Cost Effective Vascular Diagnostics andTreatment Planning) as a coodinator (piur imaging GmbH) and as a partner (ACMIT GMBH).
Based on the results of the Commission's Assessment of the 2015 Response to the FTI pilot call, and its potential to contribute to more market-creating innovation in Europe, the Commission is considering continuing the FTI in 2018-20 as part of the preparatory actions for a potential European Innovation Council.
