Two French women and one Swiss won the 2022 Best Inventor Award from the European Patent Office.

Chemist Claude Greason and immunologist Elody Belno were awarded.

Two French women, chemist Claude Grisson and immunologist Elodie Belno, as well as Swiss engineer Madiha Derozi, received the 2022 Best Inventor Award from the European Patent Office (EPO) on Tuesday.

Claude Grison (CNRS) was awarded in the “categoryResearchজন্য For its work on the plant eco-catalyst made from invasive plants, which makes it possible to clean the mining soil from metal-eating plants and create new chemical molecules.

Elody Bellnou, a former doctoral student in immunology at Beachat Hospital in Paris and now research director at the Swiss company Amal Therapeutics (Bohringer Ingelheim), has teamed up with her Swiss biotechnology engineer teammate Madiha Deroazy to develop a new medical department. A platform for developing therapeutic vaccines against different types of cancer.

Section “ArtAn Estonian team consisting of Jean Lace, Mati Arulep and Anti-Percussion won the award for supercapacitors for their high-resource carbon-based materials. They have optimized curved graphene for use as electrodes, providing fast charging, long lasting energy sources for both industrial and electric vehicles.

Young researchers-inventors are rewarded

Receiving his award in the categoryNon-EPO country“Donald Sadoway, a Canadian-American chemist who has won an award for his liquid metal battery for renewable energy storage, has been praised by the EPO for the excellence of distinguished researchers who are tackling it.”The biggest problem on the planet“And want”Change the worldThis year, more than half of the 13 research teams in the 2022 EPO Awards Power Final worked on issues related to energy and climate change.

Frederick Pasternak, a French aeronautical engineer who works for the Airbus Group and “ArtHe has already filed nearly twenty patents in his career: he has significantly developed a satellite meteorological instrument (interferometer) that significantly improves the accuracy of weather forecasts and scientific predictions of climate change, so that the amount of CO2, CH4 (methane) can be better detected. And other chemical compounds in the atmosphere.

For the first time, the EPO highlighted young researchers under the age of 30 this year, rewarding a former Belgian-British team for waste sorting and recycling technology using artificial intelligence, and American Erin Smith, 22, for her face recognition. An application that uses artificial intelligence to detect and monitor Parkinson’s disease and its warning signs from the outset.

The waste sorting process, designed to increase the proportion of recycled waste invented by Belgian Victor Duluf, 25, and Britain’s Peter Headley, 27, is now being rolled out in the UK, France, Germany and Italy through their startup Recycleye, partly with the robotics company. The first two joint prizes for young researchers receive 20,000 euros each, in the other category, the prize is honorary.

The public award was presented to Spanish robotics engineer Elena Garcia Armada (Spain) after a total of 23,000 online votes between May 17 and June 21. Mrs. Garcia Armada invented the first adapted exoskeleton for children, which could help children in wheelchairs during therapy and thus reduce muscle fractures.

Finally, the Hungarian-American biochemist Catalin Kariko, whose research has already been widely acclaimed around the world since the epidemic, received from the EPO. “The work of lifeFor his pioneering work on Messenger RNA, which established the first Messenger RNA vaccine against covid.
