BEVICA Foundation awarded grants for three DTU student projects on the 3rd of May. The grant is directed towards projects that are making life easier for people with reduced mobility in urban areas. This time the grants have been award to three student projects with ambitious goals.

Professor John Paulin Hansen, DTU Management and Marianne Kofoed, Director at BEVICA Foundation awarded the grants of 15.000 DKK to Drinksaver, 25.000 DKK to  Stokkstolen and 50.000 DKK to Ergo+.

Drinksaver has developed a simple, yet innovative solution to a problem witnessed in many aspects of everyday situations. The product is a small discrete rim placed in a cup to direct spillage back into the cup. It solves the problem of spillage at festivals and concerts.

Stokkestolen created an add-on accessory product to crutches and ensures that people with walking disabilities that now have the opportunity to turn their crutches into a contemporary armchair with two balance points.

Ergo + has as their mission to design and sell non-stigmatizing ergonomic bicycle equipment, in order to increase self-esteem of the disabled by helping them to get back in the bikes.

This was the second time that DTU Skylab and BEVICA Foundation have collaborated. “We are very proud and happy that BEVICA Fonden have decided to support these three student projects. The grants will make a big difference for the projects ability to mature their technology and eventually reach a market and create value for the users and our society” says project manager Pål Fernvall

All DTU students registered on Bachelor, Master studies or within a year after graduation as well as Ph.D students with a commercial project can apply for DTU Skylab Funding. The next application deadlines are on September 30th 2018.
