Innovation is an important part of many H2020 projects. The European Commission has launched the Innovation Radar Prize, to identify Europe's top future innovators and their innovations in EU-funded projects. Three EU-funded projects running under the umbrella of SPARC made it to the list of finalists for the Innovation Radar Prize 2017. The goal of this workshop is to present those successful projects and their innovations, and to initiate a discussion on innovation in H2020 projects: challenges, difficulties, good practices and recommendations.
