By: GALA Team, Information

Three European language technology companies are in the running to receive the first ever Innovation Radar prize. The prize—funded by the European Commission—will be awarded at the ICT 2015 event in Lisbon (20-22 Oct) and highlights rising stars in the information and communication technology arena. GALA is not surprised to see language technology companies included in this list of fascinating and potentially life-altering technologies.

Check out the 14 innovators on the shortlist and vote for your favorite. From the language technology providers, to the smart transportation solutions, to the machine-washable intelligent textiles, you have a host of impactful technology solutions to choose from!

Shortlisted innovators will give a three minute pitch on the benefits of their tools to an expert panel of judges and also demo their solutions at the Innovation Radar booth during ICT 2015. Judges and ICT attendees will vote at the event. The results of a  Euronews poll will also impact the final decision.

Which technology intrigues? Inspires you? Makes you feel like you can’t live without it? Weigh in, and see who takes the grand prize.
