Despite the Covid-19 pandemic restrictions and shortened show, the National Trade Agencies from Italy and France have selected eight nominees from each delegation to pitch on the Arena Italia at CES 2022 in Las Vegas this week.
IoT, Healthtech and AI are the most common categories of France’s startups. Four of them will be on stage to highlight how technologies can improve diagnosis, surgeries techniques, medical check-ups or skills based on neurosciences. Baracoda Labs, Open Mind, Wemed and Skincast from France are looking to expand globally alongside developing European partnership.
The French government has recently launched “France 2030”, a €30 billion green investment plan, in spending on health care, green energy and bringing industry back to France. Delmonicos is pitching its smart lectrical sub-station power technology, while Bluenav is gas-emission free naval mobility or smart electrical stations.
For pitch on the healthcare, a portable scanner from Light Science in Italy optimized for fast and reliable mass scanning will be accompanied by M2Test to help diagnose osteoporosis, while Fifth Ingenium develops bespoke digital transformation solutions in Healthcare, Industry 4.0. Bionit Labs is ‘turning disabilities into opportunities’ in the field of Human-Machine Integration.
Italy is also the second largest market for green investments in Europe, with nearly 40 percent of the manufacturing industry having implemented green technologies. Domethics delivers end-to-end solutions in the IoT market, while Beeing is the first-ever beehive designed for home beekeeping. Element Works specializes in buoys and marine drones to support a sustainable seafood industry while Hexagro works with Latin American partners to deliver urban-vertical farming technologies to cities.
The pitch competition organised by ICE ITA and Business France follows the Quirinale Treaty signed last November between the two countries, covering economy and industry, culture and education, security, cross-border cooperation and foreign affairs.
