Partners in an individual and in a collective form in work packages of ITERAMS participate in the radar for innovation following the Innovation Radar methodology (de Prato et al., 2015). The Innovation Radar (IR) is a support initiative that focuses on the identification of high-potential innovations in the ICT FP7, CIP and H2020 projects and the key organization in delivering these innovations to the market. The radar consists of two indicators: the first is the Innovation Potential, aiming to measure the innovation development of the projects towards commercialization and the second is the Innovator Capacity, which aims to capture the innovative capacity of the innovators behind these innovations.
At the same time, the Innovation Potential encompasses three indicators which refer to the Innovation Readiness, Management and Market Potential. On the other hand, the Innovator Capacity indicator encompasses the Innovator’s ability to develop innovation and the Innovator’s Environment, which aims to capture the overall conditions in the Project consortium which an innovator faces (composition and activity of partner organizations, performance and commitment to exploiting innovations).
With this framework in mind, the ITERAMS project innovation has identified the following outputs:
