21 SEPTEMBER 2016: Sensichips finalist at Hello Tomorrow Challenge

hello_finalistSensichips was selected as a finalist, along with 6 other companies, for the Hello Tomorrow Global challenge’s Air Quality track.

This global competition received over 3500 entries from early stage startups and projects. Hello Tomorrow accepted 100 startups from each continent and selected a total of 500 companies for the next phase. Of these, the selection was further reduced to just 69 companies eligible to join the finals in Paris next October 13-15th.

Sensichips’ entry features its innovative technology for monitoring the environment and measuring efficiency and residual life of filters.  The nano-technology microsensors perform detection of hazardous agents and reduce environmental impact of human activities.  In addition to making a presentation in Paris, Sensichips will also be providing an early demonstration of the technology.

Hello Tomorrow is a global non-profit, headquartered in Paris that aims to accelerate science & tech innovation by empowering startups with cash prizes and connections with investors and industries.

1 SEPTEMBER 2015: The Security Commission of the EU H2020 framework funds the NOSY project

 As part of “Secure Societies”, an European wide effort to “Protecting freedom and security of Europe and its citizens”, the EU assigns substantial funding to the New Operational Sensing sYstem (NOSY) project. The NOSY team, lead in partnership by Aero Sekur and SENSICHIPS, aims at developing new monitoring systems and miniaturized sensors to improve Law Enforcement Agencies’ investigative and evidence-gathering abilities. Throughout the project SENSICHIPS will develop miniaturized sensors for the detection of precursors and identification of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) and new generation synthetic narcotics. Other project partners will design devices and a distributed monitoring system around SENSICHIPS’ sensors which will then be validated and trialed by 4 noteworthy European Law Enforcement Agencies: the Institut de Recherche Criminelle de la Gendarmerie Nationale of France, the Bundespolizei of Germany, the Raggrupamento Carabinieri Investigazioni Scientifiche of Italy and the Guarda Nacional Republicana of Portugal.
