Advanced Treatments for Diabetic Patiens with Renal Failure
When diabetes is present in kidney failure patients in dialysis, cardiovascular mortality increases dramatically. If such a patient is then under peritoneal dialysis (PD) treatment, things get much worse as, ironically, PD requires a daily systemic use of large amount of glucose as an osmotic agent. In CoreQuest, we are completing the clinical development of a mixture of osmotic agents containing low amount of glucose capable not only to offer an adequate dialytic support, but also to efficiently counteract diabetes in PD patients. 

Honey bees are more than honey: pollination means human food. Honey bees are dying off with greater frequency, with a dramatic social impact. Worldwide beekeepers face the problem by hive chemical treatments without a definitive result. We developed a new class of hives that ultimately improve the health of honey bees, rising the pollination capability while reducing the hive chemical treatments. Thanks to an increasing widespread sensibility about the honey bees fate we'll provide our patent solution to the honey bee world industries to guarantee the human food chain future.

Safety Smart Jacket
Every year in Europe, around 2000 cyclists and 6000 pedestrians are killed in road traffic accidents. One of the major causes of collision with cars are poor light conditions, especially at road junctions. CLARA is the revolutionary smart jacket that incorporates ultra bright turn signals and breaking sensors to improve cyclists and pedestrians' safety around the world through enhancing their visibility in the darkness.

Job in the nearest. Right now
Doityo is the first Job Network Accelerator, a Mobile Community (Online Platform) to find a Job in the nearest and in real time. An App giving the possibility to “launch” in the neighborhood an “help request”, a “Job proposal” and/or to wait to be engaged in activities matching specific “Capacities”. A thorough project with a Family Authentication Strategy to guarantee reliability and with a Job Crowd-funding System enabling solidarity micro - funding. The first Social Marketplace supporting Local Unemployment and empowering Individual Microentrepreneurship.

InSun is a cloud-based and easy to use 3D Photovoltaic Configurator and Simulator  to design any kind of plant, generating full technical documentation. Moreover, InSun propose a sales & marketing service, where Manufacturers can upload products catalogs to integrate their supply chain. InSun is also an educational tool to train project managers.

Radio-guided Percutaneous Fixation of Intramedullary Implants in Traumatology
Intramedullary nailing is acknowledged golden standard for long bones fractures treatment (femur, tibia and humerus), but requires a ‘freehand’  fluoroscopic technique which is operator-dependent. IRIDE is a collimated, negligible radiation source which allows rapid, accurate and reliable positioning of distal locking screws, with dramatic reduction of the effective dose received by the surgeon and the patient.  

Support Device for Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (RCP)
In cardiac resuscitation the correct sequence and technique of cardiopulmonary resuscitation are keys for patients’ survival.
 Med-Group SA, has invented a wearable device to assist lay people in performing an effective basic life support in case of cardiac arrest.
With vocal, audio and visual inputs it is able to guide real-time and eventually correct the user during chest compressions.
It provide a feed-back about the efficacy of the procedures performed, alert the emergency center via a built-in SIM-card and a GPS system, store and transmit patients’ data.

Intelligent self-assembling structures
TrusTTechnology SA produces intelligent self-assembling structures with great aesthetic value and high technical quality, suitable for: Rescue; Events; Private; Commercial and Hotel. The assembly and disassembly by the use of a remote control is fully automatic and takes only 60 seconds, it can also have a substantial amount of optional features that can be fully integrated in the structure. Module SIA, is the solution to the problems that the currently available means are not able to satisfy, because their use is not easy, it is not fast, they need big storage space and require many people for the assembly and disassembly.

TimeRepublik is an cloud coworking space, based on timebanking, where members offer their skills, talents and services to other members in exchange for units of time. Each member has access to all the skills and talent within the community, allowing each individual to find the exact help he/she needs. TimeRepublik is considered the most successful platform of this kind and it has been recently covered by TIME magazine. On TimeRepublik over 400 varieties of professionals, creatives, and skilled workers (web developers, photographers, graphic designers, writers, programmers, translators, city guides, pet sitters, language teachers) ‘spend’ and share time at TimeRepublik.

Virtual Design of Catalysts
GPV Advanced Research is a virtual modeling start up operating in the chemical field and originates from the opportunity to apply advanced computational methods for helping chemical and catalysts manufactures companies. There is an increasing need (in the oil & gas, fertilizer and pharmaceutical sectors) to better understand the physics behind their chemical processes and to discover new catalysts for producing oil derivatives, fertilizers and delivery systems. Thus GPV provides scientific details of the behavior of chemicals from reactants to products and catalists, based on advanced computational chemistry.
