  • A tedious yet essential task in logistics is the recording of (qualitative) master data, such as dimensions and weight, so that inventories can be recorded and planned digitally. The collection and maintenance of this data involves a high level of personnel and manual effort and is very prone to errors. The startup Kaptura has taken up this challenge with the development of 3D laser scanners and thus helps companies to increase the efficiency of their logistics processes. The scanners enable faster identification of objects through the automated recording of master data. In order to jointly develop an even more efficient scanner that can capture parts of all kinds of 3D, the startup from Mülheim-Kärlich is cooperating with the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA in Stuttgart.

  • Fish is essential for feeding the world. As natural fish stocks are far from sufficient, a large proportion of fish supply is ensured by aquaculture, and this proportion is predicted to reach 60% by 2030. But on average 40-100% of fish in an aquaculture are lost in incubation and thus a large part of the yield. Startup MonitorFish has developed an innovative solution and an interesting business model in cooperation with Fraunhofer.

  • Imagine that a recent pioneering medical weapon, CAR-T cells, makes it possible to award blood-cancer patients with years of life. Imagine further that, in order to obtain these cells, a genetic modification must take place in the laboratory, which depends on optimal storage and transport of the cells. Until now, however, such transport could not be successfully provided, leading to possible treatment failure, hence wasting a huge investment in time, money and - above all - hope. A Fraunhofer start-up can now offer innovative help.
