The PowerUp! 2019 Grand Final is just around the corner! The winner of the fifth edition of the biggest competition for start-ups from Central-Eastern Europe will be selected on 21 May in Krakow, during Impact’19. It is the largest economic conference in the CEE region. We can’t wait to be there, and we are keeping our fingers crossed for all the finalists. Let’s take a look at the last two of them.
Danubia NanoTech, Winner of the Country Final in Slovakia
Danubia NanoTech developed a solution for real temperature monitoring in the form of a graphene temperature sensor. This is available as an extremely thin film which can be applied to any non-metallic substrate. The technology is valuable for EV batteries and for grid battery storage, extending the batteries' life-time.
