80 mini-companies show off innovation at European Trade Fair

10.04.2007
Junior Achievement (JA) Romania in co-operation with Junior Achievement Young Enterprise (JA-YE) Europe organized the JA-YE Europe Trade Fair from 29 March to 1 April in Bucharest, Romania.

The event brought together 500 young entrepreneurs from 30 European countries, representing 80 student companies. The event was an opportunity for JA-YE secondary school student companies to show off their innovative ideas, to sell their products and services in a public setting and share their entrepreneurial spirit.

Rewarding outstanding achievements

Prizes were awarded for outstanding achievement. The panel of judges assessed each student company on innovation, originality and presentation of products and services. Company “iTEAM J.A.” from Italy was named as best company with the best business plan, market analysis and innovative product. They designed iBelts – personalised iPod belts. www.iteam-italy.com

"Freedom of movement, which makes our life easy and pleasant today, goes above and beyond the ‘portability’ of objects. iTeam wishes to respond to that need by creating a product which combines utility and fashion, simplicity and passion,” said Simona Eldahaby, Managing Director.

First Runner-up went to STEBEON from the Netherlands, which produced revolutionary holders for shampoo bottles.

Second Runner- up was given to QUIKSTITCH, Switzerland for their tiny hole puncher and other advertising giveaways.

Other prize winners included:

- Most Innovative Product went to TYT, Israel, which invented a periscope that sticks to the eye piece in the door helping young children, older people and the disabled to see better though the door.

- Best Sales and Marketing Strategy went to Innostar, Denmark which created a plastic device for hospitals.

- Best Stand went to Prima, UK for their cook book with DVD.

- Best Team went to Dimension, UK, which created personalized black and white drawstring bags with a classic image on each.

- Special Jury Award for Corporate Social Responsibility went to Money Tree, from the Netherlands

- ORACLE Best Business Website Award went to DIFFID, Slovakia for their creative website www.diffid.gta.sk

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...

Im Focus: New nanomaterial can extract hydrogen fuel from seawater

Hybrid material converts more sunlight and can weather seawater's harsh conditions

It's possible to produce hydrogen to power fuel cells by extracting the gas from seawater, but the electricity required to do it makes the process costly. UCF...

Im Focus: Small collisions make big impact on Mercury's thin atmosphere

Mercury, our smallest planetary neighbor, has very little to call an atmosphere, but it does have a strange weather pattern: morning micro-meteor showers.

Recent modeling along with previously published results from NASA's MESSENGER spacecraft -- short for Mercury Surface, Space Environment, Geochemistry and...
