UNITED project partners nominated "Key Innovators" by the European Commission
Great news for three UNITED project partners!
The FuE Kiel (Forschungs- und Entwicklung Fachhoschule Kiel GmbH), the North Sea Farmers and the Ghent University (Universiteit Gent) have been selected as “key innovators” by the European Commission. More specifically this nomination targets the development of novel procedures for seeding and grow out of the blue mussel and seaweed in offshore environments. The Commission regards this innovation as worth exploring further and as responding to the needs of existing markets.
These key innovators will be able to display additional information about their organizations and next innovations on the EC Innovation Radar platform. They will also be able to get support from the Horizon Results Booster services provided to Horizon Europe and H2020 projects for dissemination, development of exploitation strategies, of business plans and for the potential release to the market.
With this nomination, the three partners join the 9000+ EU-funded innovations already showcased on the platform.
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 EU's Innovation Radar platform. 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.
The Innovation Radar platform can be accessed via a website or a smartphone app - iOS or Android)
