Active Cues

Dutch scaleup Active Cues allows people with cognitive challenges to play games and thus work on their mental or physical or social capabilities by playing games. The Utrecht-based company developed the ToverTafel technology, which turns any surface into an interactive game. This supports seniors with dementia, people with intellectual disabilities or children with problems in their development. The games are based on scientific research done at the Delft University of Technology and the Department of Clinical Neuropsychology of the VU Amsterdam. The ToverTafel is currently in use in over 1800 care homes in seven different countries. The deep tech solution won Active Cues numerous awards, among them the first prize in the EIT Digital Challenge.

Eiratech Robotics

Eiratech Robotics from Ireland lets robots do the heavy lifting in warehouses and distribution centres around the world. Their robotics goods-to-person solution employs self-driving robots that will collect goods with stunning speed and accuracy. This solution doesn’t require heavy infrastructure and can be implemented, modified and expanded whenever the need arises, making it incredibly scalable. No wonder these robots are finding their way to warehouses and fulfilment centres in the USA, UK and Spain.


HyperCRC takes interior design to the 21st century. Their mixed reality solution uses deep tech to solve design challenges by creating detailed models of any environment. Designers can interact with a physical object while adapting and transforming them in a virtual setting. This eliminates the need for expensive and wasteful physical models, thus making the design process more efficient. While currently at the prototyping stage, in time HyperCRC will be an essential design tool unrivalled for visualising and communicating designs.

Staffing shortages and increasing workloads are serious problems in health care. As a result, nurses have less time to spend with their patients. Social & Autonomous Robotic health Assistant ‘SARA’ helps out in nursing homes and hospitals to increase the quality of care. The robot is able to interact with patients on a personal level, will navigate a care institution autonomously and can help out with different tasks. This way the Dutch startup helps healthcare professionals to spend time doing what they love most: care for their patients.


OEDIPUS knows that companies can innovate better when they collaborate. That is why this project is aimed at creating special I-centres, where it is all about testing, innovating, collaborating and focusing on getting the product ready for the customer. The first five centres are operational, allowing big companies and SME’s to test their innovations in a safe and focused environment. All with the goal of helping European industries to increase their competitiveness and generate economic growth. This way the German, Siemens-backed initiative will generate valuable business opportunities that lead to concrete product creations and services.
