ERGOVIAKinematix is a disruptive innovation in the area of Smart Factory targeted predominantly at automotive and mechanical engineering sectors. It is a complex HW&SW solution comprising wearable smart measuring device with sensors capable of eliminating magnetic field data infringement, high-capacity data unit with a Big-Data analytical tool and a unique software capable of real-time recognition and evaluation of biometric position of fingers (in 3D) based on globally used ergonomic methods. There is nothing comparable to our solution at the global market. The product solution is targeted at automotive and mechanical engineering sectors that comprise an estimated number of 5 000 companies in the EU, 16,3 mil. employees and about 250 automobile assembly and engine production plants in the Europe. Our solution is capable to identify manufacture efficiency increase up to 30% in terms of time and 25% in terms of manufacture efficiency (by means of lean operations elimination). Moreover, our specific approach (via ergonomic measurement) is primarily oriented on workers´ welfare and thus, reduces risks of most common occupational disease – musculoskeletal diseases. Concept of the product is based on customers´ feedback and identified market gap (absence of sensors resistant to metallic objects´ magnetic fields that influence the accuracy of measured data e.g. in engine manufacturing lines). We plan to implement the whole project within 30 months (6 months Phase I, 24 months Phase II). The expected costs of these two phases are app. 1,57 mil. EUR. By 2022 our project will generate a turnover of 8,75 mil. EUR and 25 new jobs created. Our goal is to have a 15% EU-market share in consultancy services by 2025.

ALgorithms EXposed. Investigating Automated Personalization and Filtering for Research and Activism
Company Name UNIVERSITEIT VAN AMSTERDAM
Funded By 38
Country Netherlands The , Western Europe
Project Value 149,922
Project Detail

Personalization algorithms—filtering content on the basis of someones profile—increasingly mediate the web experience of users. By forging a specific reality for each individual, they silently shape customized information diets: in other words, they determine which news, opinions and rumors users are exposed to. Restricting users’ possibilities, they ultimately infringe on their agency. As exposed by the recent Cambridge Analytica scandal, they are supported by questionable data sharing practices at the core of the business models of the social media industry. Yet, personalization algorithms are proprietary and thus remain inaccessible to end users. The few experiments auditing these algorithms rely on data provided by platform companies themselves. They are highly technical, hardly scalable, and fail to put social media users in the driver seat. The ALgorithms EXposed (ALEX) project aims at unmasking the functioning of personalization algorithms on social media platforms, taking Facebook as a test case. It is data activism in practice, as it uses publicly available data for awareness raising and citizen empowerment. ALEX will pursue five goals: 1) software development and stabilization, building on the alpha version of facebook.tracking.exposed (fbtrex), a working prototype of a browser extension analyzing the outcomes of Facebooks News Feed algorithms; 2) the release of two spin-off products building on fbtrex, namely AudIT, enabling researchers to do expert analysis on algorithmic biases, and RealityCheck, allowing users to monitor their own social media consumption patterns; 3) testing the technical feasibility of adapting the ALEX approach to analyze algorithmic personalization on other platforms such as Twitter and Google; 4) the design and organization of data literacy modules on algorithmic personalization, and 5) the launch of a consultancy service to promote tool take-up and the future sustainability of the project.

Multifunctional smart inhibitors for anti-corrosive coatings, enabling a significant reduction of maintenance costs on metallic surfaces
Company Name SMALLMATEK - SMALL MATERIALS AND TECHNOLOGIES LDA
Funded By European Union
Country Portugal , Western Europe
Project Value 71,429
Project Detail

Smallmatek (SMT) has been a pioneer in the development of nanotechnologies to avoid metals corrosion and in providing consultancy services on the area of environmental monitoring. Our strong know-how leads us to create and invest in a revolutionary solution to avoid metals corrosion: the ADDPRIME. Corrosion results from a negative interaction between metallic materials and the surrounding environment. Costs related with corrosion constitutes 3% of the annually GDP of industrialized countries. Only in Europe, €701billion are spent per year to solve corrosion related problems. The most widely used solutions to protect metallic structures combine high-toxic corrosion inhibitors with coatings. However, both components suffer a negative interaction between them, resulting in a low anti-corrosive protection. Furthermore, current solutions allow for small savings of 15% of global costs of corrosion. We, at SMT, developed a new patent based-technology that increases in 6 times the metals corrosion resistance. ADDPRIME uses encapsulated corrosion inhibitors that are released by stimulus of specific triggers. Our technology has the capacity to entrapped corrosive environmental species. Moreover, our solution is based on a nanotechnology with up to 3 times less toxicity than the current solutions, resulting on a low environmental impact. By using ADDPRIME, coatings companies will have cost savings up to 27% in the production of anti-corrosive coatings. End users of our solution, such as maritime markets, will have up to 60% savings on maintenance costs. ADDPRIME technology will help Europe keeping the leadership in the production of ambitious anti-corrosive “smart” solutions. With the exploitation of ADDPRIME, we expect to create 37 new job positions and enter in new markets such construction, industrial, maritime and automobile, where metallic surfaces are exposed to extreme conditions, achieving a turnover of 21M€ by 2023.

Funded By European Union
Country Spain , Western Europe
Project Value 71,429
Project Detail

The importance of water for human life is irrefutable. However, it exists a real threat to global water quality due to the pollution generated from residential, industrial and commercial origins. Nowadays, the social trend is to move towards a circular economy to replace the conventional ‘take-make- consume and dispose’ model of growth, where water recycling will play a significant role. Currently the annual world demand for fresh water is 64 bn m3, where just about 7.1 bn m3 comes from recycling due to the high cost of the technologies for wastewater treatment. The need to reuse water along with the scarcity of water has encouraged the development of new water treatment systems to satisfy the growing demand. ÆNEAM aims at launching to the market a green, versatile and efficient process for the industrial synthesis of biocompatible ceramic scaffolds materials for their use in wastewater treatment. Our system will reduce the energy demand, reducing the generation of sludge with a minimum maintenance. Nevertheless, we still need to carry out full operational test to validate our solution for its subsequent commercialization. In addition, we need to forge commercial agreements with strategic partners to guarantee our presence into the market. Our market, the Agroindustry global wastewater treatment market, was valued at €1.7 bn in 2017, and its forecast is to grow at a CAGR of 5.35% from 2018 to 2023. Based on our commercialization plan we will offer our solution to the rural environment companies of the agro industrial sector, which will include not only the sale of MEMBio, but also maintenance and consultancy services. Following our business strategy, we establish an average price of 1,000€/unit for industrial membranes, and 300€/unit for research purposes. Based on the profitability of the project we expect a cumulative revenue of €14.2 M by the third year, meaning a cumulative cash flow of € 7.2 M. Considering a 3-years forecast will give us a ROI of 294%.
