Sweden has joined the Innovation Radar, an initiative supported by the European Commission, which identifies high potential innovations and the key innovators behind them in Horizon 2020 projects.
Last week His Excellency Ambassador Haak, Deputy Permanent Representative of Sweden to the EU signed the Innovation Radar declaration, making Sweden the 23rd country to join the initiative. The European Commission’s Directorate-General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology was represented by Thomas Skordas, Director “Digital Excellence and Science Infrastructure”, during the ceremony on 26 September.
The Innovation Radar is an initiative that focuses on helping high-potential innovations developed within the Horizon 2020 funding programme to reach the market. The Innovation Radar declaration was launched in April 2018 at the Digital Day. The Commission is committed to working with EU countries to raise the profile of the Innovation Radar and increase its uptake by relevant participants in countries and regions.
