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 new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.
The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...
For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
