A CO₂- Management Software for the Chemical Industry
According to the World Research Institute, the chemical industry accounts for around 5.8% of global carbon emissions.

How digitization can improve stoma therapy
As a nurse on a surgical station, Jan-Hendrik Träger has experienced for himself the problems that often arise in the therapy of stoma patients.

ISC3 - for sustainable solutions in chemistry
One of the central questions in the chemical sector is how to shape a change towards sustainable chemistry so that both the environment can be protected and a circular economy can be established. To find answers to this very question, the International Sustainable Chemistry Collaborative Centre (ISC3) was founded in 2017. Together with 5-HT, civil society, and public and private sectors, the ISC3 is working to achieve its goal of promoting and developing sustainable solutions in chemistry worldwide.
Better understanding of fatigue - with the Fimo App
Fatigue is a physical, mental and emotional state of exhaustion that occurs independently of periods of stress. Because even rest and sleep phases do not lead to recovery, fatigue makes it difficult for those affected to cope with everyday life and reduces their quality of life. To better understand this disease including influencing factors, Alexander Krawinkel, Managing Director, founded the health tech startup Fimo Health together with two colleagues in 2019.

Granny Vision wants to bring a breath of fresh air into old heads with Virtual Reality (VR). The founding team Carolina and Daniel Bendlin have realised that seniors can participate more in life in general and in the everyday life of their families with the help of Extended Reality. Even if they live in a retirement home.
