DKK 15 million for new start-up factory in the innovation environment at Navitas

A new start-up factory is opening at Navitas in September. With a grant of DKK 15 million, Aarhus will gain a brand new and visionary innovation environment with a strong thematic association with the cleantech branch.

The Aarhus City Council, the Central Denmark Region and Aarhus University Hospital borrowed Aarhus University’s combined engineering research squad for two days. The result was a number of new product ideas for improving current rehabilitation efforts. Pictured here are three of the researchers in the winning group. They generated the idea of a wheelchair with a single joystick that changes function when it is docked in different parts of the home. From left they are PhD student Simon Lind Kappel, Associate Professor Lars Ottosen and PhD student and Assistant Professor Annette Beedholm Rasmussen.
