AbstractThis report presents an assessment of the Fast Track Innovation pilot (FTI pilot) programme, and the underlying rationale for intervention. The major finding of this final evaluation of FTI pilot is that the programme is highly relevant to the broad policy goals of H2020 to promote innovation and its application. The FTI pilot is the only fully-bottom-up measure in Horizon 2020 promoting close-to-the-market innovation activities that is open to all types of participants. Since its inception, it has thus seen a strong participation of private for-profit entities and attracted newcomers to European research, development and innovation funding. The present study suggests that FTI funding supported the development of high-risk projects with EU value-added and potential for breakthrough innovation. In line with Horizon 2020 programme objectives, FTI is also offering solutions to address particular societal challenges. Yet, like other parts of Horizon 2020, budget limitations for the pilot led to a very low success rate, which was criticised by applicants and all other stakeholders.
