The Moers-based start-up Medipee is developing a device for automatic and contactless urinalysis. This week, the team around Thomas Prokopp, Paul Bandi and Frank Willems was awarded the Digipro Award for the best cross-border cooperation project. As part of the project, a functional prototype was developed, which is to be made available for a market-oriented investigation. The findings of the tests carried out with the project partners are intended to identify further optimization possibilities as well as user needs.
The Digipro Award was presented at the closing event in the award-winning Kleefse-Waard Industrial Park in Arnhem. Four years after the start of the Digipro project, which is at its core for the cross-border cooperation between Germany and the Netherlands, the initiators draw a positive balance.
Several German and Dutch companies from the border region were involved in the EU-funded INTERREG project. Medipee benefited from financial support from the funding pot in 2019 and has since worked closely with the project partners on the Medipee platform.
The three founders were visibly pleased after the award: “The entire project was a complete success for us! The close cooperation between all project partners has definitely borne fruit and will continue after the end of the project,” says Paul Bandi, co-founder and technical director of Medipee.
