Congratulations, Run4Health, TubusOne, Pilloxa and ICellate!
Among the supported activities and start-ups selected as official “Success Stories” by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) for their work in 2018 (more information here), we find one particularly appreciated Scandinavian Campus activity, and three Scandinavian startups. Congratulations to you all!

In 2018, the programmed scaled up across Scandinavia. Organised by the Scandinavian Partners Uppsala university, Copenhagen university and Karolinska Institute. Project leader is Dr Margareta Krabbe, Uppsala university.
• TubusOne (start-up, Denmark): A Danish-designed low-tech communication device used for navigating on tablets and smartphones by people who are paralysed from the neck down and are therefore unable to use their arms and hands.
• Pilloxa (start-up, Sweden): Pilloxa is a medication-adherence platform, currently available in four hospitals across Sweden, to help people make sure they are taking all of their medication at the right time.
• ICellate (start-up, Sweden): iCellate Medical offers services in liquid biopsy, to detect, isolate and analyse circulating tumour cells (CTCs), circulating tumour DNA and germ-line DNA, from normal blood samples. iCellate’s mission is to detect cancer early, when it can still be cured, and to guide individual therapies.
