We are going to Slush 2023!

Selected Aalto Startup Center Research to Business cases from Aalto University were present at Slush 2023, the world’s leading startup event happening every year in Helsinki.

On November 30 – December 1st at the Helsinki Expo and Convention Center

A must-go event for startups willing to step up their game, meet interesting people and create valuable connections.

Check this video recap of our time in Slush!



Thank you to everyone who came to Aalto University’s booth to learn more about the incredible Research to Business projects, or the ones interested in Aalto Startup Center’s work. We really appreciate your interest and we hope you now have a better understanding of how we operate.

Read here the 12 R2B cases that were at Slush 2023:

  • Agate – R2B
    Combining the worlds of traditional CMOS RGB and hyperspectral imaging on a single chip, creating more than 1000 colors per pixel. Leading the imaging technology disruption, bringing hyperspectral imaging capabilities into your palms, drones, cars, and industrial equipment.
  • CirPa – R2B
    Sustainable, lightweight, and fashionable sound management solutions. The circular panels are biobased, lightweight wall panels with tailored surface patterns that maximize noise control and provide aesthetic value as a decorative element. The project operates on circular economy principles by exploiting locally available forest resource side streams to design an unprecedented foam material that can be shaped to meet the customer’s needs.
  • CuRen-M – R2B
    CuRen-M’s battery technology solution based on copper chemistry drives the global adoption of renewable energy sources and enables more resilient electrical grids and energy systems. CuRen-M’s solution is simpler, more sustainable and scalable than existing alternatives, enabling the bundling of grid and storage services to create value for its end-users.
  • hentoTouch – R2B
    hentoTouch is creating a discreet, non-invasive, neuromodulating medical device for alcohol relapse prevention. They aim to be the future of alcohol use disorder treatment.
  • Milliscan – R2B
    World’s most convenient people screening system for security operators and government agencies. MilliScan provides a simple imaging system for safe and effective people screening. Their imaging system can detect hidden metallic and non-metallic objects without emitting harmful radiation.
  • mTMS – R2B

    Developing a non-invasive multi-locus transcranial magnetic stimulation (mTMS) system for therapeutic activation of brain networks. In response to an overwhelming need for personalized approach in curing the neurological diseases, our technology is delivering treatment in an adaptive, closed-loop spatiotemporal scanning mode, maximizing the real-time feedback of neuronal activity for steering the therapeutic direction.

  • NPHarvest – R2B
    NPHarvest at its core is a research project aiming to enable efficient and profitable nutrient recycling from waste flows to the (fertilizer) market. Our technological development is at pilot scale and we’re currently working on commercializing our technology. The technology is based on energy efficient hydrophobic membrane stripping for ammonia and ballasted sedimentation of phosphorus with lime.
  • Otoscreen – R2B
    Addressing cases of hearing loss is very important as it is expected to increase significantly by 2050, resulting in a significant economic burden. Therefore, early identification of hearing damage and hearing loss is important to guarantee effective treatment, prevent functional impairment and increase cost-effectiveness. This project investigates solutions that lead to earlier treatment.
  • PCMI – R2B
    A smart, self-regulating, bio-based insulation material. Heat flows as a result of contact between materials with different temperatures. Thermal insulation prevents heat exchange between materials where needed. This makes insulation materials widely important in daily life use for example in electronics, buildings, packaging, etc.
  • Urisens – R2B
    Urisens is a healthcare technology solution that solves a significant need in elderly and long-term care, screening renal function and hydration. Data collection happens remotely, using a low-cost sensor system embedded in a diaper. Urinary data and artificial intelligence assisted analysis will generate clinically useful information.
  • Visentools – R2B
    A service for businesses who want more efficient meetings, more engaged and motivated employees, and see the need to improve communication and inclusivity.  It is a groundbreaking business-to-business toolset to increase collaboration and improve communication using visual objects. Unlike traditional collaboration solutions, they focus on how we work and communicate.
  • Wuud – R2B
    WUUD offers novel wooden interior and exterior cladding solutions for contemporary architecture. Their impregnation and embossing methods can be integrated into a single manufacturing process or utilized separately based on the needs of the target construction or refurbishment site.
