Discover great EU-funded Innovations
EIC Transition: innovation discovery tool for EIC Pathfinder / FET innovations

The EIC Transition instrument supports activities to mature a novel technology and develop a business case to bring it to market. The majority of funding will be awarded through TRANSITION OPEN calls supporting projects in any field of science, technology or application. Transition OPEN calls are restricted to results generated by projects previously funded by EIC Pathfinder, FET Flagships calls, ERC Proof of Concept projects and certain projects funded by the European Defence Fund. The discovery tool presented on this page is to facilitate preparation of proposals for TRANSITION OPEN.

There is also funding that will be awarded for Strategic EIC Transition Challenges. For 2023 the strategic EIC Transition CHALLENGES are:

  • Full scale Micro-Nano-Bio devices for medical and medical research applications
  • Environmental intelligence
  • Chip-scale optical frequency combs

EIC Transition Challenges calls are restricted to proposals building on results generated in any Horizon 2020 or Horizon Europe project that are relevant to the 3 EIC Transition Challenges. For these Transition Challenges calls the general Innovation Radar tool can be used to identify innovations that could be relevant for the Transition Challenges.

Applicants will need to demonstrate that are the owner or holder of the Intellectual Property Rights (IPR), or have the necessary rights to commercialise the results from the eligible project.

The search tool below allows potential EIC Transition proposers to navigate innovations in the Innovation Radar database that came from EIC Pathfinder projects (including projects funded under EIC pilot Pathfinder, Horizon 2020 FET-Open, FET-Proactive, FET Flagships). It is provided to interested parties to discover innovations that could then be the basis for an EIC Transition proposal. All innovations appearing below have been analysed by the JRC’s Innovation Radar methodology. Proposers – and not the European Commission - are responsible for establishing if any innovation appearing on this page is aligned with the eligibility conditions of the call.


  • If you intend to apply on the basis of an eligible project for which the grant is still active, the start date of the grant needs to be more than 12 months before the 2023 call cut-off dates, i.e. the project needs to have started before 12/04/2022 for first cut-off; or before 27/09/2022 if applying for the second cut-off.
  • If you are applying on the basis of an eligible project which has already been completed, the end date of the grant for the eligible project needs to be less than 24 months before the 2023 call cut-off dates, i.e. the project needs to have ended after 12/04/2021 for the first cut-off; or, after 27/09/2021 if applying for the second cut-off.
  • All innovations listed on this page are from a project whose start and end date means they are eligible for the cut-off date of 12/04/2023. Use the toggle button below to view innovations from projects eligible for the 27/09/2023 cutoff date.

Results are ranked on the basis of the date the innovation was analysed by Innovation Radar (most recent results at the top taking into account the above mentioned eligibility dates). Innovations from ERC Proof of Concept, European Defence Fund or ERANET do not appear in this search tool.

  • Use key word searches / filters to find project results / novel technologies that could be ready for the next steps towards its maturation and validation and / or you think could be the basis for ground-breaking new business.Titles and descriptions of innovations will be searched for your key word(s).
  • The “Market Maturity” filter can help identify innovations on the basis of their market maturity
  • Each project result identifies up to 3 "key innovator" organisations who were involved in development of the result. These could be candidates for partnership in an EIC Transition proposal.
  • Links are provided to a profile page of these organisation on the Innovation Radar page. On this profile page you can find an "E-mail this innovator" link to send a message direct to the innovator. This is one path for you to kick start an exchange about a possible proposal based on their innovation.
