Tiago Matos (Amsterdam UMC): Dermoscope
We developed a scientific-based app capable to quickly identify which personal care products are safe and effective for each specific individual’s skin type. We use on average 10 PCPs daily, that means more than 500 different chemicals that we put in our skin every day. Many products still contain dangerous chemicals that can cause skin diseases and even cancer!
Dermoscope not only has the power to improve the health and well-being of millions of people, reduce personal care & hygiene costs,
but also reduce the amount of waste and decrease disposal of toxic chemicals or microplastics in the water stream and enviroment.
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 […]
Corentin Coulais (UvA): Edible Metamaterials Metamaterials have already widely been used in physics and engineering to control how light and sound propagate. In other sectors – like the food industry – their potential has remained completely unexplored. We think that metamaterials could dramatically improve the interactions between humans and materials and to help create sustainable food sources. […]
