On 21 October, the Innovation Radar awarded outstanding innovations emerging from research and innovation projects financed by the EU in its annual event. React4Life, an EIC-funded company from Italy, won the Category 'Innovative Health Tech'. This biotech SME was awarded for its organ-on-a-chip solution that supports the development of personalised drugs and can accelerate the development of new therapies.
The annual event of the Innovation Radar gathered 12 finalists from all across Europe. During the session, the companies pitched the market plans for their EU-backed ground-breaking innovations and faced a jury composed of investors and entrepreneurs. Besides the 'Innovative Health Tech', won by React4Life, three other prizes were offered during the ceremony: the general Innovation Radar award and the prizes for 'Innovative Sustainability Tech' and 'Disruptive innovation'.
