Winner: Thermaiscan

Thermaiscan’s innovation enables early detection of breast cancer with the help of AI, thermal imaging technology and a smartphone. The product is perfect for mini clinics, primary care and health care professionals who visit patients at home, or in rural areas. In addition to being a portable solution, a non-specialist can perform the examination by having the AI analyse the result.

Finalist: Compular

With the help of innovative software, Compular can simulate and analyse optimal chemical compositions to achieve the smartest energy storage. This leads to more environmentally friendly batteries with both higher energy density and longer life – which in turn contributes to the transition to a more sustainable society.

Finalist: Navari

Navari’s innovation can improve the living situation for people diagnosed with liver cancer. The technology simplifies navigation during peephole surgeries and increases the precision in removing cancerous tumors. With the help of AR projection, the surgeon sees a live updated image in real time and thus gets an exact overview of how the tumor is located, how big it is and what it looks like.

Finalist: Swiftly

Swiftly is a digital platform that uses machine learning to automate the hiring process for companies, recruiters, and job seekers. Their goal is to connect recruiters and job seekers in a neutral, self-sufficient ecosystem without revealing any personal information before the interview.
