Edcel Salumbides (VU): Non-invasive pre-symptomatic illness detection in farm animals
We are developing a non-invasive breath sensor for cows, for the early detection of illnesses well before observable symptoms. The automated and frequent health monitoring would enable timely and precise feed adjustments by farmers to stop disease progression. The technology is derived from the extremely sensitive and specific spectroscopic techniques developed for fundamental physics studies at LaserLaB VU Amsterdam.
Dairy is an important dietary component in the global challenge of feeding the increasing human population. Our technology will promote healthy animals and will help farmers attain peak productivity and efficiency. This will not only reduce economic costs and minimize environmental emissions, but will also help ensure a better quality of life for farm animals.
Syranos Tjee (HvA): Recipe Creation I want to do something about food waste and my idea is Recipe Creation. People often don’t know what to do with their leftovers and also often throw leftovers away, which is a shame. With Recipe Creation you can scan your leftover food and it will generates a recipe. My […]
Arnon Lesage (UvA): SolarFoil Plants need light to grow, and a world that requires more food needs light optimized towards agriculture. We are developing a transparent layer that can manipulate sunlight into light optimized for agriculture. Sunlight contains useful light, but also harmful UV and green light which is not so efficiently used. Our nanotechnology […]
Jawad Essallami (HvA): Eddy Lite The global transport makes for about 25% of our daily energy use. But what is the best way to use less energy in transport? It would help to make our vehicals lighter by using carbon composite. This is a very strong and light weight material, used more and more in […]
