The awarded innovation, titled ‘Parallelware Technology: analysis tool aiming to reduce the burden of making code parallel’, was outlined by Manuel Arenaz on 24 September 2020 during a special pitching session at the European Commission’s Research and Innovation Days.
The selection of finalists was organised by Dealflow.eu, a EU-funded supporting market-focused innovators emerging from Horizon 2020, which will offer a programme of tailored support to secure investment and help get the winners’ innovation to market.
Commissioner Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, said:
"We will use Innovation Radar across all research areas to identify EU-funded innovations with market potential and steer them towards support for getting to market, that will be offered by the EIC and the new Digital Europe Programme.
We also want to use Innovation Radar to make it easier for investors and venture-builders across Europe to discover great innovators and innovations in Horizon Europe.
We will continue to champion such excellence and make it easier to discover this excellence through the public-facing Innovation Radar platform, enhancements of which will be launched in the coming months."
