EuropeanPioneers funds start-ups with over 2 Million Euros for the second round

01.04.2015

This week the EU-accelerator programme “EuropeanPioneers” starts the second round of funding, in which 13 start-ups and SMEs get the chance to be supported with up to 250,000 Euros.

Entrepreneurs in the areas of Smart City Services, Social Connected TV, Pervasive Gaming and E-Learning will receive the fund.

The programme aims to support innovative business models of start-ups and SMEs. Applications deadline of the second round closes on June 22, 2015.

Interested entrepreneurs can apply through http://www.europeanpioneers.eu.

In the course of the intensive 8-month programme, the participants will be introduced to lean start-up and design thinking methods.

They will also be mentored by experienced coaches in concept and business model development, milestone planning, user testing, team building, marketing and finance.

Moreover, they get to work with technologies of the FIWARE-platform, an innovative cloud-based infrastructure solution for economical development of digital applications, developed by companies and research facilities in the “Future Internet Public Private Partnership“ (FIPPP) of the European Union.

12 teams out of nine European countries are currently funded by EuropeanPioneers. The teams were selected for the first round, which officially started in December 2014.

The EuropeanPioneers accelerator, led by start-up-builder etventure, is part of the Future Internet “FIWARE ACCELERATOR PROGRAMME” of the European Union which distributes a total of 80 million Euros to innovative companies.

EuropeanPioneers is one of 16 accelerators of this programme. Consortium partners are the Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems IAIS (Sankt Augustin, Germany), Weblify (Poland), Thoughtbox (Ireland) and F-Secure (Finland).

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
