Safer Nanomaterials 2020 - Call for Projects

BioHealth Computing Schools, in collaboration with EIT RawMaterials, have offered a full scholarship for up to 10 of our members to attend their upcoming school on Safer Nanomaterials, to be held at the European Scientific Institute in Archamps, Greater Geneva, on 4-9 May 2020. This summer school is an accelerated learning programme proposed by EIT RawMaterials partner institutions and the European Scientific Institute. The course addresses the complex challenge of the substitution of critical raw materials through the use of nanotechnology, promoting a ‘safety-by-design’ concept, which seeks to minimise environmental and human health risks related to nanotechnology. The selected participants will be not required to pay the registration fee, and will be OFFERED FREE meals and accommodation during the course!

This course is open to Masters or PhD students in computer science, medical or life science, biotechnology, engineering, materials, data science, business, human and social science. The course is also worth 6 ECTs. Your ideas for innovative nano-enabled devices and services will form the basis of the school’s innovation and entrepreneurial groupwork. This will culminate in a pitching session in front of a panel of international experts.

The deadline for applications has been extended to 10 March! If you are interested please apply on their website!

EU Startup Prize for Mobility 2020

There will be 10 winners: 10 startups selected based on their ability to transit the transportation sector from a highly carbon-consuming, expensive, inefficient model to a low-carbon, inclusive, safer, connected (de-)mobility service.

Startups from all over Europe: EU members and neighboring countries are eligible to apply (inter alia Israël, Turkey, Norway, Switzerland, UK, etc.).

The Prize is a 6 months acceleration programme: including a mentoring by the Boston Consulting Group, a tour of 4 big European cities to meet the local tech ecosystems and find the right cooperation to scale up (investors, public authorities, big transportation companies, etc.).

Grand final: initially planned to be hosted in Vivatech (Paris) on 11 June 2020, it will now be re-scheduled due to the coronavirus outbreak. Details will follow as soon as there’s a bit more clarity around the pandemics.

Application deadline is 30 April 2020
