Win-win for students and startups at the 5-HT Digital Qualifier
What do you get when students spend a semester working intensively on concrete, practice-relevant challenges from companies? For the 6th time, students have worked on practice-relevant challenges from start-ups as part of the Digital Qualifier. On 15 June, the students of the Master's programme in Business Information Systems presented their research results on real challenges of companies and start-ups to Prof. Dr. Martin Selchert at the University of Applied Sciences Ludwigshafen and discussed them afterwards.
Chemical biology for drug development in the age of genome research
Chemical biology holds a crucial role in today's drug development, bridging the gap between modern genomics research and both societal and economic demand to develop new drugs from this knowledge. Our ecosystem startup biotx.ai precisely addresses this issue
Digital laboratories for accelerating materials optimization and discovery with Atinary Technologies
Advanced materials play an essential role in technology innovations across industries to address the big challenges in climate, energy, and health. However, until today, only a fraction of all existing materials have been explored. Moreover, discovering and developing these materials is a very slow and expensive process. The deeptech startup Atinary Technologies has set itself the task of changing that.
5-HT X-Linker "Smart Production" - a tremendous success
On Friday, 03 June, we heard "Build crosslinks now!" for the third time this year. Under the slogan "Smart Production", 10 international startups presented their digital solutions for the process industry as part of the 5-HT X-Linker "Smart Production".
SaaS Systems revolutionizes refugee coordination
In the context of the refugee flows triggered by the Ukraine war, SaaS Systems tailored its "Software-as-a-Service" solution to improve the coordination of Ukrainian refugees arriving in Germany. Developed with German offices, this digital management and administration solution aims to avoid duplication of effort and Excel lists when coordinating refugees.
Greater energy savings in utility engineering
According to the Federal Environment Agency, many air-conditioning and ventilation systems are hidden energy wasters that account for up to 50% of energy costs in offices, public buildings and companies. The startup etalytics, founded in 2020, aims to tackle previously untapped energy-saving potential. A spin-off of Darmstadt University of Technology, etalytics delivers innovative insights and measures to maximize energy efficiency while reducing costs and CO2 emissions.
Purency makes microplastics visible
Small, oftentimes invisible microplastics can be found almost everywhere in nature and products today. Of course, it doesn't belong there. But how can you reliably and quickly detect the particles that are invisible to the bare eye? The software of the Viennese startup Purency, the Microplastics Finder (MPF), analyzes measurement data from FTIR & Raman microscopes based on machine learning models and identifies the type, number and size of microplastic particles within minutes, even in complex samples.
Unique sustainability management in the chemicals and plastics value chain
Climate targets are changing industry and sustainability has already become a crucial competitive factor. Many companies therefore want to improve their environmental footprint, but often don't know where to start.
