Grants4Tech

Robotics starts to become available for more and more applications within production and laboratories. Together with and on behalf of BAYER, INIVTE organized the robotics challenge grants4tech.bayer.com to explore the current state of technology for a given application.

The first ever Grants4Tech prize was a real crowd-magnet at the Cube Tech Fair in May 2017 as it featured live demonstrations of robotic solutions of the challenge to sample powder from drum containers for quality control purposes. “With this robotic challenge, BAYER’s objective is to strengthen the bond between the life sciences industry and academic robotic research communities and startups,” said Dr. Hartmut Klusik, the BAYER AG Management Board member responsible for Human Resources, Technology and Sustainability, who presented the award to the winning team.
