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

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.
The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...
Cardiovascular tissue engineering aims to treat heart disease with prostheses that grow and regenerate. Now, researchers from the University of Zurich, the Technical University Eindhoven and the Charité Berlin have successfully implanted regenerative heart valves, designed with the aid of computer simulations, into sheep for the first time.

A team of scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg investigated optically-induced superconductivity in the alkali-doped fulleride K3C60under high external pressures. This study allowed, on one hand, to uniquely assess the nature of the transient state as a superconducting phase. In addition, it unveiled the possibility to induce superconductivity in K3C60 at temperatures far above the -170 degrees Celsius hypothesized previously, and rather all the way to room temperature. The paper by Cantaluppi et al has been published in Nature Physics.
Unlike ordinary metals, superconductors have the unique capability of transporting electrical currents without any loss. Nowadays, their technological...
