The European Commission – Innovation Radar Prize 2022 puts a spotlight on the high-potential innovations trying to get ‘out of the lab and into the market’.  

The Innovation Radar Prize is a unique opportunity to give visibility to those innovators showing the most promise on the journey of commercialisation. 

A short list of innovations was selected from over 300 applicants by the Innovation Radar Committee and Committee and submitted for open voting to all citizens.

The 12 finalists are running for 3 categories:  

  • Purpose-Driven & Green: Europe’s most encouraging innovators with pioneering businesses and great growth potential, while striving for a more environmentally sustainable future.
  • Disruptive Health: best-in-class EU-backed innovators in the life science and medical field.
  • Kickstarter: these are hidden gems that have not yet reached the market. The Kickstarter category represents high-potential innovations that are still in the early stage of development but have already a convincing and concrete go-to-market strategy.


The e-pitching event will take place via video conference on the 15th of November from 9:30 to 12:30 CET. All 12 innovators will pitch their innovation in front of a jury composed of investors and entrepreneurs, for 6 minutes followed by 5 minutes of Q&A. The session is followed by online Q&A Roundtables, where all attending investors can get the chance to talk to the innovators. The overall and category winners will be announced after the event. 

The participating projects are particularly interesting because each has received significant, non-dilutive, EU funding that has enabled them to develop breakthrough innovations. This is a unique opportunity for early-stage VC funds and business angels to invest in highly innovative low-risk companies with mature digital products.  

The event is open to everyone:
