Elythor, AeroSpec and Beyond Scroll receive an Innogrant

— The EPFL Startup Launchpad has granted three awards of CHF100,000 each to future EPFL startups Elythor, AeroSpec, and Beyond Scroll. The first startup project has designed a new drone to inspect and monitor long linear structures such as powerlines, bridges, and railways, the second aims to protect human health by analysing the make-up of air pollution, and the third has created a new method to compress hydrogen – a gas which has the potential to be a major factor in slowing down climate change.
