CelluXtreme commercializes a new technology for spinning continuous filaments (fibers) from nanocellulose, a result of research at the Wallenberg Wood Science Center. The technology has been demonstrated on a lab scale, which has shown how it can be used to produce super-strong bio-based fibers that can compete with carbon and glass fibers but without the problem of landfills that these materials have. Another example of use is functionalization to support cell growth, which enables a material that can be used in medical applications.
Math can be hard, frustrating, and scary, and to make matters worse many students don't know how to study it. They do everything they can to avoid actually doing math. You couldn't learn to ride a bike or play the violin without actually trying it, and you can't learn math that way either. We at Dogl have created an app for Calculus students that lets them do math in a fun and unintimidating way, with game-like features that keep them coming back. Math is needed for so many careers today. We need to give students the tools they need to succeed!
LOGX improves tracking and certification processes of the forest-based product supply chain by introducing transparency. The lack of transparency in these supply chains has led to increased costs, high levels of risk, and fraudulent activity. We offer immutable digital ledgers to record the different transactions involved in wood certification. With these immutable records of transactions, companies and auditors can verify the origins of the products/materials being purchased. We believe that our solution can bring these supply chains into the digital age and contribute to the fight against illegal logging.
Ordeca helps senior managers in private and public organizations to reduce the percentage of failing change projects. By offering a digital platform/SaaS solution for more effective organizational design. Ordeca is the only market provider with an enterprise solution integrated with advisory service.
Large industrial companies rely on a number of engineering software applications and platforms in their development process. These applications are not necessarily designed to easily integrate with each other, leading to inconsistencies in their product data and inefficiency in their development process. We provide tools for the easy integration of incompatible engineering software applications. By relying on the OASIS OSLC interoperability standard, we deliver vendor-independent integration solutions
Ovulai is a FemTech startup on a mission to make women’s health knowledge accessible and actionable. Female infertility affects at least 1 in 10 women, and the usual root cause is hormonal imbalance and an irregular menstrual cycle. We want to help these women by providing a personalized fertility solution for their unique menstrual cycles: an app that will give them personalized guidance for hormonal health improvement and a fertility-testing device that will track the most fertile days in an irregular menstrual cycle. Our personalized, data-driven solution increases the chances for pregnancy, sparing both time, money and distress for women and empowering them to take charge of their own fertility journey!
Experimental data obtained at large-scale research facilities make the invisible visible and open up new possibilities towards materials and process innovation. However, data has no meaning without proper analysis. With today’s tools, data analysis takes months and requires deep knowledge about physics, materials, and processes. We thus developed a data analysis software: Scatterin. It uses in-house developed data analysis protocols together with materials database and makes data analysis easier, faster, and more reliable.
Staying on top of sustainability best practice and understanding companies' sustainability impact is manual and complex, which makes it impossible to work with sustainability continuously and efficiently. At SustainLab, we are developing a Sustainability Management platform to automate data collection and processing, as well as to help companies in best practice sustainability work. As a result, companies can spend time on actions, not reporting, and accelerate change.
