Lucero will ring in the new year with generous funding from the European Innovation Council (EIC) to continue the development of our 3D cell culture handling platform.
Lucero awarded 900 000 SEK Vinnova Innovative Startups Stage 2 grant to build on Stage 1 progress in preparation for an on-site pharmaceutical pilot project and Seed round funding.
Out of 934 applicants, Lucero was selected by Vinnova, Sweden’s Innovation Agency, as one of the recipients of the Innovative Startups Stage 1 grant. The grant is targeted towards early-stage startups that are based on innovative products and services and that show global growth potential. The money is meant to help startups develop their prototypes and business models, as well as create strategies to protect and commercialize their intellectual assets.
Chalmers Ventures hosted their annual Accelerator Pitch event during the first week of November. The event showcases new additions to their Accelerator program with a friendly pitch competition. This year, the event was held digitally and the best pitch was decided by public vote.
Lucero has been awarded Almi Företagspartner Väst’s verification grant to help fund prototype development that is set to begin this fall.
We are very honored and happy to share that from the hands of our great advisor Dr. Giovanni Volpe, Lucero was selected as one of only three projects from Sweden to receive the Proof of Concept Grant (PoC) from the European Research Council. This grant aims to explore the commercial and societal potential of the very best and most innovative research from the European Union.
