Seeking revolutionary plant protein sources
PepsiCo seeks to incorporate new plant proteins into their world-class foods and beverages. Consumers are increasingly selecting products that feature plant-based proteins: from rice milk to pasta made from chickpeas. Additionally, market demand also indicates a continued strong interest in protein-rich foods. An unfortunate side-effect of high levels of plant protein in food products is that various organoleptic properties, such as color, taste and texture, can be negatively impacted which, in turn, degrades consumer acceptance of those products. As such, PepsiCo is interested in innovative plant proteins that have undergone some level of concentration. Researchers & organizations who have exciting new plant protein concentrates with the potential for commercial-scale implementation on suitable timelines are strongly encouraged to respond.
Seeking proposals to advance the knowledge on COVID-19 and on the coronavirus family
The current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has been declared by WHO as a Public Health Emergency of International Concern according to the International Health Regulation. It is crucial to rapidly gain a better understanding of the newly identified virus, especially in relation to potential clinical and public health measures that can be put to immediate use to improve patients’ health and/or contain the spread of COVID-19. Collaboration of private companies, academia, international organisations, public bodies etc. has the potential to accelerate the development of therapeutics and diagnostics to tackle this current and future outbreaks. The actions resulting from this call will contribute to the pan-European efforts responding to this Public Health Emergency. Proposals submitted under this topic are expected to advance the knowledge specifically on COVID-19 and more widely on the coronavirus family with the aim of contributing to an efficient patient management and/or public health preparedness and response to current and future outbreaks of coronavirus infection.
Seeking insect control products and technologies that are non-toxic to people and pets, yet perform as well or better than their toxic counterparts.
The global home insecticide market is dominated by chemicals that are toxic to insects, people, and pets. P&G Ventures is interested in insect control products and technologies that are non-toxic to people and pets, yet perform as well or better than their toxic counterparts. P&G is interested in all segments of insect control (contact killer, barriers, traps, on-body repellents and foggers) and managing the following insects: House Flies, Mosquitoes, Fruit Flies, Stink Bugs, Bed Bugs, Roaches, Ants, Moths, Gnats, Spiders, Silverfish, Centipedes, Millipedes.
Wind flow Interface concentrator for VAWT
The researchers of the University have developed a wind flow concentrator incorporated into a Vertical Axe Wind (VAWT), which allows a significant increase in wind speed before being injected to the turbine. The system allows the optimization of the currents with independence of its direction and it is applicable to any type of VAWT. It is suitable for any type of building.
New method for the diagnosis of cutaneous leishmaniasis
Leishmaniasis is an endemic parasitic disease that is found in most parts of the tropics, subtropics and southern Europe. Cutaneous Leishmaniasis (CL) is the most common form of Leishmaniasis. It is caused by the protozoan Leishmania parasites, which are transmitted by the bite of infected female phlebotomine sand-flies. Cutaneous Leishmaniasis causes skin lesions, mainly ulcers, on exposed parts of the body, leaving life-long scars and serious disability. The skin lesions usually develop within several weeks or months after exposure. About 95% of Cutaneous Leishmaniasis cases occur in the Americas, the Mediterranean basin, the Middle East and Central Asia. An estimated number of 0.6 million to 1 million cases occur worldwide annually. Over two thirds of new Cutaneous Leishmaniasis cases occur in the next six countries: Afghanistan, Algeria, Brazil, Colombia, Iran and Syria. Cutaneous Leishmaniasis is diagnosed by detecting Leishmania parasites in tissue specimens from skin lesions via light-microscopic examination of stained slides, specialized culture techniques, or molecular methods. This disease is treatable and curable. Early diagnosis and effective case management reduces the prevalence of the disease and prevents disabilities and death. Hence, early detection and prompt treatment of cases would therefore help to reduce transmission and to monitor the spread and burden of the diseases. In this invention, a new system for non-invasive, early, fast and easy to use diagnosis test for Cutaneous Leishmaniasis from exhaled breath analysis has been developed.
High-definition respiratory monitoring tool - Bainisha's Twin Chest System
Current technology Current systems for measuring/monitoring respiratory movements (such as Thorax displacement) @ medical level, rely on one single technology: Inertial Measurement Units (IMU) aka "accelerometry". The resulting data of such measurements however are very often inadequate & hard or impossible to interpret. Problem E.g. the raw IMU-data output of coughing may look exactly the same as the raw IMU-data of riding a bike on really bumpy road ! When such type of confusion arises, it is impossible to distinguish between very different events. Solution A second sensor technology is added: a very thin, ultra-stretchable, very accurate displacement sensor. This sensor is fixed to the body as a simple self-adhesive patch. The fixation is of such a high quality and "integrates" with the skin so thoroughly, that it is nick-named a "Second Skin"-sensor. Together with the on-board IMU the "Second Skin" sensor forms a Sensor Fusion System. I.e. by cross-linking the raw data of two very different sensor concepts all uncertainties, "grey"-zones and impossible to interpret situations are eliminated. The sensor-fusion concept also widens and multiplies the capabilities for capturing a multitude of different types of "body language/events"
