Discover our services

We write winning proposals. We are specialized in the most competitive European funding programmes, such as:

  • EIC programmes (EIC Pathfinder, EIC Transition, and EIC Accelerator), the funding schemes supporting breakthrough technologies and game-changing innovations.
  • Eureka- Eurostars the funding instrument that supports innovative SMEs and project partners (large companies, universities, and research organisations) by funding international collaborative R&D  projects.
  • Cascade funding, the EU mechanism distributes smaller amounts of funds allocated to various types of specific activities, from studies to experiments and pilots.

Through our network of investors, we can help you raise the private funding you may need. Raising private capital may be time-consuming, and we know you don`t have time. We follow you along all the process from material preparation, pitch training, preparation of investor lead-list to investor reach-out and finalisation of investment. We minimise the time and increase the chance of successWe want you to be dedicated to growing your business and not to deal with red tape.

We leverage the contacts we have built with corporates. We work with you to build the technological project in collaboration with corporates that will help to validate your technology and complete your product-market fit.

SAALG Geomechanics

Programme EIC accelerator

Budget Grant € 1.5 million + Equity € 1.8 million

Challenge

Mainly funded by taxpayers’ money, the construction industry has a poor track record in sustainability, efficiency, and safety, which are, in many cases, linked to the lack of understanding of ground behaviour. The construction industry is responsible for 11% of global carbon emissions from construction embodied carbon, 9 out of 10 projects experience cost overruns (+45% of project cost) and 60,000 fatal accidents in construction yearly. Geotechnical uncertainty translates to over-designs, unforeseen events, and impacts overall safety.

Solution

The EIC Accelerator co-funded project GEORGIA responds to the opportunity to reshape the Capital Infrastructure and Large Building Projects market by introducing and consolidating the concept of interactive design. GEORGIA will enhance the development and commercialization of DAARWIN as the pioneer end-to-end digital platform based on an Adaptive Genetic Algorithm to address the ground uncertainty problem, reduce carbon footprint and cost overruns and increase the safety of construction projects.

Impact

DAARWIN makes the automation of geotechnical back-analysis possible to match the construction progress pace and empowers decision-making for a more sustainable, efficient, and safer construction industry. As long as construction projects adopt DAARWIN, they save up to 20% on carbon-intensive materials, such as steel and cement. Moreover, DAARWIN reduces up to 30% of cost overruns and 20% of accidents in complex construction industry environments.

mjn-neuro

EIT Health Startup Amplifier Instrument Program

Budget: 2.76 million euros

Challenge

Epilepsy is a chronic disorder of the brain that affects people of all ages. According to the World Health Organization, approximately 50 million people worldwide have epilepsy, making it one of the most common neurological diseases globally.

People affected by uncontrolled epilepsy suffer from unpredictable seizures. They do not know when they could have a seizure or if it could cause a serious accident.

All this uncertainty means that 50% of people with drug-resistant epilepsy also have anxiety, depression, or both. The ability to lead a full life is drastically reduced, and fear of attending school, inability to get a job or loss of social life becomes routine.

Solution

mjn-SERAS is a wearable medical device, wireless, non-invasive, and discreet, that can generate an alarm signal between one to three minutes before seizures start. Patients can reach a safe place within this time until the seizure is gone. Bridge the Gap helped the consortium to prepare the project’s proposal, define the technological developments, craft the workplan and the go-to-market strategy and coordinate the submission process.

Consortium

Nine partners with complementary competencies and roles share this mission.

The Oxford University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (UK), Diakonie Kork,  Epilepsiezentrum (Germany), Clínica Universidad de Navarra (Spain) and Synaptia (Spain) will carry out the clinical trial to validate the technology with actual patients in daily life and outside the hospital.

In close cooperation with DKV Salud and Medtronic, two leading health and medical device players, mjn-neuro will optimise the technology and the device’s design.

The Medical Valley (Germany), IESE Business School (Spain), Biocat (Spain) and Oxford University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (UK) will take care of the communication and business activities, including the insurance reimbursement aspects.

Finally, the DKV Integralia Foundation will support the social inclusion of people affected by epilepsy by providing job placement opportunities.

Impact

This project, led by mjn-neuro, aims to accelerate the penetration into the European markets of its mjn-SERAS device, the world’s first device capable of providing early warning of an epileptic seizure.

mjn-neuro provides a solution to reduce stigmatisation and improve the quality of life and social integration for people affected by epilepsy in Europe.

mjn-SERAS will drastically improve the quality of life of people affected by epilepsy.

ECO2Blocks

Cascade funding Innowide

Budget 60.000 euros

Challenge

Yearly, around 2 trillion paver blocks are produced worldwide in long production cycles (15 days), requiring vast and expensive warehouse areas for stocking and unnecessary immobilisation of billions of euros. Moreover, the standard paver blocks manufacturing process emits more than 14 billion tons of CO2, consuming more than 300 million tons of water and 6.5 billion tons of natural resources.

The steel industry faces challenges in giving proper destination to its waste. Yearly, 400 million tonnes of steel slag are generated, and most of this is dumped at landfills, giving rise to environmental problems and the costly obligation for steel companies to store them adequately.

Solution

ECO2Blocks, a patented technology, uses 100% steel slag and wastewater to produce pavement blocks that are 5x more mechanically resistant and 2x more fire resistant compared with current concrete pavement blocks.

The pavement blocks made using our technology show a mechanical resistance 5x higher and a fire resistance 2x higher when compared with current cement materials.

The project has helped the company to exploit the business opportunity by introducing the technology in Brazil by conducting a small-scale pilot with the  Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional (CSN) to validate the improved process for ECO2Blocks production. This pilot will be used as a showcase for commercial activities and to contact potential partners and other regional stakeholders.

Impact

ECO2Blocks has a tremendous impact on the steel industry and the construction sector. ECO2Blocks, facilitate the transition of the steel industry towards a circular economy paradigm under two perspectives. We give value to the steel slag, which currently is treated as a waste output of the steelmaking process and is often stored in landfills. For each ton of steel slag, steel producers pay 5 euros for its management.

Using our technology, the steel slag, which represents with dust 32.9% of the steelmaking process by-product output, is re-used to produce value. Moreover, we store the Co2 present in the flue gas resulting from the steelmaking process in the pavement blocks contributing to limiting the emissions.

The cement manufacturing industry represents 5–7% of the total CO2. ECO2Blocks will replace the current method used to produce pavement blocks with a cement-free technology, permanently storing the Co2 in the block´s matrix.
