Demo Day is the last stage of MedTech-Athon „Engineers for Society”, during which we will get to know the winners!
During the event, demonstrators prepared by the winners of the MedTech-Athon final will be presented. These projects were selected by the competition jury as projects with the greatest development potential and the greatest chance of success in the commercialization process.
The first place in the final was taken by the Personal-Sensbox team for the project of creating a portable monitoring system for people suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Sensbox measures the level of selected air pollutants and warns about exceeding the standards.
The teams FluoFibers and Scienceporium took second place ex aequo. The first one focused on an innovative method of detecting Alzheimer’s disease biomarkers using biomodified photonic systems, and the second team developed a biodegradable test kit for the early detection of the Lassa virus.
During the Demo Day, we will see how projects prepared by PhD students of the Warsaw University of Technology have been developed and we will meet the winning team. The prize is a research internship for doctoral students in a selected unit of the Warsaw University of Technology.
The event will take place on February 28, 2023 at 17.00 at the Center for Advanced Materials and Technology of the Warsaw University of Technology CEZAMAT WUT at ul. Poleczki 19 in Warsaw Ursynów. The event will be held in English.
