In 2018, the highly successful FET-Open programme became part of the European Innovation Council (EIC) pilot, which in the next three years will support top-class scientists, researchers, innovators, entrepreneurs and small companies with bright ideas. FET Open will be the EIC pilot’s exploratory engine for research on future and emerging technologies. It will continue to mobilise Europe’s most creative and forward thinking researchers and innovators from all disciplines to work together and discover what may become the disruptive technologies of the future. FET Open supports early-stage... high-risk research around new ideas for radically new future technologies. It explores an open range of new and disruptive technological possibilities in all areas of Science & Technology, inspired by cutting-edge science, unconventional collaborations and thus pioneering new ways to create the optimum conditions for serendipity to occur. This booklet provides analysis and information on tendencies of FET-Open Research and Innovation Actions in terms of country and organization participations, scientific fields covered, interdisciplinarity of research topics, proposal resubmissions as well as innovation-related aspects.
