PepsiCo posted this Technology CallSeeking novel proposals to incorporate pea protein concentrate into low pH beveragesHumans have cultivated and eaten peas (Pisum sativum) for millennia. Modern consumers are looking to the seed as a promising protein source – it is rich in proteins which can be isolated to make pea protein concentrates (PPC). While PPC are available in many forms and products, little or no research has been done to understand its behavior in low pH solution or model systems. As a result, food producers have encountered difficulties incorporating PPC into acidic products, such as fruit juices. The goal of this project is to identify pea protein concentrates that are suitable for usage in low pH systems or to find technologies capable of processing PPC so that they may be used in low pH environments.
PepsiCo posted this Technology CallSeeking revolutionary plant protein sourcesPepsiCo 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.

Every solution is a building block to a better future for all.
Strategic Allies Ltd. posted this Technology CallSeeking recognised scientists, research organisations, and suppliers of research tools working in the cannabinoid (and related compounds) global marketOur client has established various product brands serving the consumer lifestyle market and is investigating the development of a range of cannabinoid-based products for use in health and lifestyle applications. With an increasing number of products based on this group of compounds derived from the cannabis (hemp) plant, our client has a particular focus on those targeted for consumers directly (rather than for medicinal applications). Whilst CBD is a well-known cannabinoid, there are a host of additional compounds naturally present in the plant which are thought to contribute to an efficacious final product. Products commonly target different end effects such as pain/inflammation, relaxation, and promote sensory enjoyment, but claims are often based on anecdotal evidence and lacking established scientific knowledge or relevant data sets to support the product’s effective use. Consumers are beginning to question the validity of such product claims, and companies such as our client seek the fundamental science knowledge to support their future product development initiatives and claims. The client is continually seeking to ensure their products are based on established science, and therefore wishes to identify and engage with recognised scientists, research organisations, and suppliers of research tools working in the cannabinoid (and related compounds) global market. The aim is to identify potential partners able to inform and assist in building their fundamental knowledge in this area and provide a network of experts to work with in supporting their ongoing product development activities.

Covid-19 Innovation Challenges by Innoget posted this Technology CallSeeking biologists, data scientists, students or experts with innovations to address issues of the COVID-19 pandemicCOVID-19 Open Innovation Challenge Roche Canada is committed to working in partnership with our Canadian community to develop solutions to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. The SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) pandemic is impacting the daily lives of everyone around the world. We are isolated within our communities, we are exceeding the capacity of our health systems, and we are struggling to keep pace with the rapidness of the outbreak. But together, we can get through this. And together, we can innovate to make a difference. Roche Canada is committed to working in partnership with our Canadian community to develop solutions to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. To move this forward, we have established the Roche Canada COVID-19 Innovation Challenge - a funding program to support our community in bringing forward innovative ideas to address some of the biggest challenges and issues of the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether you are a biologist, data scientist, student, patient, or someone with an innovative mind and wants to make a difference, we need you! Some examples of these challenges that need to be addressed include: • How can we better understand disease biology, pathophysiology, transmission, etc.? • How can we address our health system capacity issues? • How do we enhance real-time information sharing? • How will we effectively manage remote and rural populations (eg. remote indigenous populations)? • How can we increase the education and awareness and promote healthy practices? • How can we increase the participation and effectiveness of social/physical distancing? • How can we manage productivity while distancing and isolating ourselves?
Covid-19 Innovation Challenges by Innoget posted this Technology CallSeeking students ages 13-17 from around the world to form virtual teams to develop technology-based solutions to slow the spread of COVID-19The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the recent outbreak of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) a pandemic, spanning 112 countries and infecting over 150,000 people. As scientists and public health experts rush to find solutions to contain the spread, much still remains unknown about COVID-19. As the world races to contain the virus, existing and emerging technologies are proving to be valuable. In fact, governments and health care facilities have increasingly turned to technology to help manage the outbreak. In China, where the first confirmed case of COVID-19 was reported, the government has launched several initiatives to integrate artificial intelligence (AI) and data science into the healthcare system to track and contain the outbreak. The rapid spread of COVID-19 has sparked alarm worldwide. Many countries are grappling with the rise in confirmed cases. It is urgent and crucial for us to discover ways to use technology to contain the outbreak and manage future public health emergencies.
