Every year each of the ESA brokers organises a competition for new technology transfer ideas. Ferry Janssen (GP) and Berry sanders (HDES) participated this year with their idea to use the EVE Oxygen Cool Gas Generator for general practitioners so they can help patients with breathing problems until an ambulance arrives.
This idea is a further development of the EVE prototype that has recently been tested by the HDES team.
Ferry and Berry intend to use the prize to further develop the business plan. Ferry will work with his colleagues to further define the product and Berry will work on the cost of the EVE generator when produced in large numbers.
