Commission launches voting for Europe's top future innovators
On 29 October 2018 the European Commission has launched a competition to identify Europe's top future innovators. The public is invited to vote for their favourite among 50 nominees who have been developing innovations through EU-funded projects. The finalists come from SMEs, universities and start-ups and are delivering a diverse set of scientific and technological breakthroughs. 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.
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. The jury will decide on one winner from each category, and an overall winner who will be featured on a euronews programme about their innovation and its market potential.
Voting is open until 12 November 2018: https://ec.europa.eu/futurium/en/innovation-radar-prize/
