Imagine an easy to use, non-invasive and affordable detection of cancer. Imagine further that it is done by an app. MIROCULUS from Mexico delivers just that: a microRNA detection platform that can accurately diagnose and monitor diseases at a molecular level, without the need of a specialized technician or expensive lab machinery, making microRNA detection more affordable and scalable than ever before. IoT 2.0 – imagine innovation for tomorrow.
According to the global competition of WSA, Mexico is the country for innovative start-ups. 4 out of the WSA winners 2015 come from Mexico and convinced the international Grand Jury.
Making impact on society starts with the youngest. Teaching children robotics to make digital innovation graspable, for example.
SNOWBALL from KUWAIT has the potential to solve the lack of motivation in the traditional classroom in primary schools. This flagship project encourages young people to innovate and enter the world of industry and entices them to be productive with a simplified robotics unit they program.
40 Winners from 24 countries, selected from 386 nominations. WSA 2015 once more presented a diameter of innovation from Indonesia to Argentina, from Iceland to New Zealand.
