WeNet has been once again singled out by the EC initiative and platform, which recognised the Ask4Help chatbot and WeNet diversity-aware platform as “key innovation”, evaluated as also having business-ready market maturity.
This marks another important achievement for the whole consortium, as well as partner U-Hopper Srl, which has also been identified as “key innovator” a second time in connection to the EC’s analysis. The company, together with coordinating partner University of Trento and Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, was in fact already highlighted by the EC Innovation Radar in 2020 for their work within WeNet.
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 platform. This shows 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.
