GROW 2022 - let's go into a new round!
The GROW program of the Smart Green Accelerator matches greentech startups with companies from green energy and green industry. We, the Pfizer Healthcare Hub Freiburg, are GROW innovation partners and are looking for startups that have developed innovative solutions for production and process optimization, for example in the areas of sustainable production and circular economy.
We are looking forward to a new round of courageous startups and innovative solutions – and of course to finding cooperation partners who will support us with well-thought-out solutions for our current challenges. In particular, we are looking for solutions for the following areas of innovation:
- Recycling processes for packaging, circular economy, material recovery
- Simulation and optimization potential of continuously operating process plants
- Intelligent systems for quality assurance in ongoing production
- Smart/fast residue analysis of active pharmaceutical ingredients
- Management/processing of pharmaceutical wastewater, hot wastewater
- European Green Deal Implications for Manufacturing, Energy Efficiency
GROW success stories
Our cooperation with perto on the subject of energy efficiency, but also the cooperation with mondas for the development of an IoT platform for safe drug production are real success stories that have emerged from the program and now have the opportunity to scale from Freiburg into the global Pfizer organization.
If you have developed a solution to the above topics that is ready for the market and you also have a valid sales strategy, apply for GROW 2022! Registration is open until April 10.Register here
