NutriCare.Life is a nutrition consultancy service and personalized nutritional supplements provider. Globally 1 in 5 deaths are associated with poor nutrition (Lancet 2019). The aim is to cover nutrients deficiencies to optimize health, mainly with food and only if it is necessary with one single pack/day containing all needed nutrients. We provide customized nutritional recommendation scientifically validated based on digital and biological markers using a digital platform and a patent-pending algorithm. The team is formed by medical doctors with 20 years’ experience in nutrition, one of them worked at Abbott Nutrition, software engineers who previously developed web & mobile digital platforms, one of them coordinate the development of ERP system for Ipsos Interactive Services and internationally recognized professors from prestigious USA universities, specialized in nutrigenetics and lab analysis.
The issue tackled by the platform is the inadequate transparency of plans and programs from various areas with environmental impact and non-involvement of different actors in the process of strategic environmental assessment. The objective is to work as a bridge between the authorities involved in strategic environmental decision-making and the citizens. The platform brings at hand, in one place, plans and programs from various areas with environmental impact and raises awareness regarding their impact and applicability. After 6 months of incubation process under the guidance of Impact Hub Bucharest and WWF Romania, on 13th of May, the platform has been launched.

The project “Connected road users for increased safety and optimized traffic flow” tackles the problem of maintaining the safety for all traffic participants and especially for the vulnerable road users (VRUs) in the context of the city’s mobility. The project is centered around an interactive application designed to facilitate communication between traffic users by providing customized warnings, suggestions, and required contextual information. The project is at the stage of the proposal, as it addresses the current mobility context from Iasi, negative externalities, and proposes improvements to develop the application based on smart infrastructure (with AI video cameras and sensors needed to sustain the application).
When accessibility was first mentioned, it was allocated only to the target group of people with disabilities and as “access for people with disabilities” and “access for wheelchair users”. In ZERO + we test and prepare a certification for everyone. Self-awareness: business owners, community workers and passengers will sit in a wheelchair AND get to experience the streets, the shops and the entire infrastructure. Through self-experience we want to reduce inhibitions and accept deficiency as something NORMAL. In the ZERO + project, various everyday tasks have to be done. Something normal, but a challenge for wheelchair users/older people/prams. shopping different things, getting money from the bank, driving along the beach, visiting the office and checking different circumstances.
Eco Tree Group
Ecotree is a tech and innovation company that integrates modern technology features, binds them together and creates a new software that allows users of all categories to help the recycling industry. Our core belief is that the problem of climate change has a solution that has been figured out, all we need to do right now is to implement it, to collect the relevant data from the market, from the scientific communities, to gather them in one place and to act upon it. We are working on the project since 2017, we’ve won ReuseHub, Futuremakers, and have been finalists in the Startarium competition. We managed to receive a 215.000 EUR funding from a group of investors, in the present, we are implementing pilot projects with 10+ clients to have a final validation.
Metrici Thermal Analyzer is a software solution, based on deep neural networks (AI) which not only detects and measures the temperatures of an unlimited number of simultaneous faces of the passing people, on thermal images provided by the Mobotix cameras, but also has some advanced features embedded, like: four thermal algorithms, bounding box reduction, realtime calibration with black body or by using a static deviation, web UI with logs, reports and alarms. By using our solution, the companies and public authorities can use their existing thermal cameras for pandemic prevention. Metrici Thermal Analyzer solution was developed in about a month and a half and now (7th of July) is ready to market and the first licenses were already sold to customers.

ZenParking Smart Parking
ZenParking Smart Parking
We believe parking in very crowded areas based on luck is not smart at all. We believe the civilised way is to use a reservation system, just like we use in medical sector private clinics and other services. Our device ensures reservation is kept. With a reservation system citizens gain time when they find a spot to reserve, and when they don’t they know enough in advance to use other means of transportation (ex: subway, bike, taxi). This reduces traffic and polution as well. With a smart system the pricing can vary easily. Fast parking areas with first 30 minutes put at a decent price and the rest made very expensive would encourage more citizens to use the same number of spots in crowded areas. Also, parking spots pricing can be used as a bonus to encourage other smart city directions – reduction of costs for people who recycle, or family with kids. We believe reservation is the civilized way of parking in very crowded areas!
Sibiu County Council
New County Hospital
The project of building a new county hospital for adults and children in Sibiu responds to the need for modern, holistic and high quality health services, with a design that ensures an adequate response to epidemics and other emergencies while integrating respect for the environment and the opportunities of digitalization. The current county hospital is hosted in 27 different buildings, the oldest ones dating back to 1857. In the absence of a Municipal Hospital, Sibiu County Hospital serves the 460.000 inhabitants of Sibiu county, as well as patients from neighbouring counties. The project is in an advanced stage. Sibiu County Council owns the plot of land for the construction and an environmental assessment confirmed the location is adequate for a public hospital. Initial urban planning permits have been obtained and the technical and economic documentation related to the feasibility study has been completed. The process of accessing European funding has been initiated.
