The European Commission’s Innovation Radar‘s analysis of EU-funded projects under Horizon 2020, identified ORCA partners National Instruments and IMEC as “Key Innovators”for their work in the ORCA project. The selected innovations are:

  •  “New Application for the NI LTE and 802.11 Application Framework with the NS3 LTE and WiFi Module” innovation, which was evaluated by the Innovation Radar as ‘tech ready’ (Progressing on technology development process). More info at:
  • “Communication Hardware Virtualisation” which was evaluated by the Innovation Radar as ‘Explore’ (Innovations in early phases of technological readiness, with high commitment from organisations developing them.) More info at:

The Innovation Radar platform builds on the information and data gathered by independent experts involved in reviewing ongoing research and innovation projects funded by the European Commission. These experts also provide an independent view regarding the innovations in the projects and their market potential (more information about the Innovation Radar methodology is available here).

The aim is to make information about EU-funded innovations from high-quality projects visible and accessible to the public via the Innovation Radar platform. This will show citizens the many excellent technological and scientific advances being delivered by researchers and innovators around Europe, funded on their behalf by the European Commission. This initiative has the support of EU Members States and, to date, Ministers from 23 countries have signed the Innovation Radar declaration confirming their support for this initiative. Organisations included in this initiative can benefit from new opportunities to partner with business or academic organisations and to trigger interest from potential customers or investors. Above all it will demonstrate to a global audience the innovative work featured organisation are active in delivering.
