The SweetMind team is the winner of the second edition of the Innovation Days of the UPV, for the creation of an app aimed at children with type A diabetes.
Moreover, the group of Biomedical Engineering students at the UPV made up of Luis Vidal Solano, Rocío Catalán Flores, Elisa Ramírez Candela, María Gómez Mahiques and Pablo Urquijo Martínez has reached the European final and has been among the ten finalists.
The team now has many opportunities to develop the project both within the StartUPV ecosystem through IdeasUPV (from whom they will receive all the necessary support and advice), as well as through the EIT Health Alumni network from which they become part.
The Innovation Days (iDays) are a European-level competition organized by EIT Health, held in 35 universities and innovation centers throughout Europe, and whose objective is to motivate university students towards entrepreneurship in the health sector.
The second prize of the UPV iDays has gone to Aldana, a virtual home assistant aimed at elderly people who live alone. The third prize went to SensHome, a monitoring system for dependent people.
The audience’s award went to SafeWatch, a system to help people who live alone in their day-to-day lives. The jury also highlighted the MentAPP project, a gamified app aimed at people with mental illness.
153 people have registered for the UPV meeting; 85 women and 68 men representing 15 nationalities: Spain, Germany, Bangladesh, China, Colombia, Ecuador, France, Germany, Italy, Morocco, Moldova, Pakistan, Palestine, Panama and Romania.
The UPV Innovation Days have been organized by EIT Health, the ITACA Institute of UPV, IdeasUPV and the UPV Vice-Rector’s Office for Students and Entrepreneurship.
