The University of Helsinki is going to the start-up convention Slush Helsinki to show off innovations from various fields of top research. The most topical projects are GlucoModicum, Biodecon, Moprim and Nanojet. The University of Helsinki’s HiLIFE institute is bringing life sciences to the Slush Y Science event.

The University’s Slush section will feature a total of 13 innovations at different stages of the commercialisation process. At Slush, they will look for partners, entrepreneurs and investors.

GlucoModicum is working on a needle-free, painless way for diabetics to measure their blood sugar levels. Biodecon is an environmentally friendly substance that can be used to neutralise chemical and biological weapons as well as other dangerous chemicals. Moprim’s precise technology analyses acceleration data, generating new opportunities for using data collected by mobile devices in fields such as urban transport planning. Nanojet is developing hi-tech solutions for nanoscale bio-imaging.

Investors can take their pick from medical innovations to education export.
