The Innovation Radar is a European Commission initiative to identify high potential innovations and innovators in EU-funded research and innovation framework programmes (more details)
Market Maturity categories
All featured innovations are automatically assigned to one of 4 maturity categories. The categories reflect the relationship between an
innovation's technological readiness and the commitment of its innovators in terms of “Innovation Management”. This is visualised in
the graph below - value for the "Innovation Readiness" sub-indicator on X-axis, value of "Innovation Management" sub-indicator on
Y-Axis (these are sub-indicators of the "Innovation Potential Index" of the Innovation Radar methodology).
Technologically mature innovations considered ‘Ready for the market’
Innovations progressing on technology development process. Further action in terms of market-oriented actions are required.
Innovations for which concrete market-oriented ideas are in place (e.g. market studies, business plans). Further progress on tech development is required.
Innovations in early phases of technological readiness, with high commitment from organisations developing them.

Welcome to the Innovation Radar platform.
This website lets you discover great EU-funded innovations by either searching by keyword
or by applying filters or both!
Additionally you can navigate the map to find innovations based on their geographical location.
The filters include the possibility to discover innovations based on their market readiness.
There are four categories reflecting different levels of maturity of innovations:
Innovations considered ‘Ready for the market’.
Innovations that are progressing on the technology development process.
Innovations for which concrete market-oriented ideas have been put together.
Innovations in the early phases of technological readiness.
