The Biomedical Research Foundation Academy of Athens (BRFAA), partner in CURE, was selected in July 2019 as one of the 36 finalists for the prestigious European Commission’s “Innovation Radar Prize 2019” under the “Innovative Science” category, linked to their research in CURE.

The Innovation Radar is an initiative from the European Commission to identify high quality innovations from EU-funded research projects grouped under 4 categories: Tech for Society, Innovative Science, Industrial & Enabling Tech and Women-led innovations. A public poll was open to vote for the best 3 EU-funded innovators of each category.

The 12 finalists (3 in each category), in terms of votes cast, were selected to the finals. A jury of experts reviewed the candidates and announce the winner at the Research and Innovations Days in Brussels (24, 25 and 26 September 2019). We are proud that BRFAA was initially nominated for the prize and reached a good number of votes.

Congratulations to the 3 finalists. These were Oslo University Hospital, Space Structures and Max-Planck-Gesellschaft Zur Forderung Der Wissenschaften.
