Sensors that enable drivers to find free parking spots faster and thus make cities cleaner. A low-cost assessment tool for detection of dyslexia at an early age to provide timely support. These are only two of five deep tech scaleups that EIT Digital has awarded in the EIT Digital Challenge 2017 to support their international growth in 2018 and beyond. The annual contest sought for the best scaleups - fast growing startups ready to scale their operations - in five key areas: Digital Industry, Digital Wellbeing, Digital Cities, Digital Finance and Digital Infrastructure. The winners received a prize package worth €100,000 consisting of one year support in the EIT Digital Accelerator programme worth €50,000 and €50,000 in cash.
