BirgerMind® project is inspired by a member of our team, Birger, who is suffering from ALS for more than 26 years, and we strive to help everyone in need. We are experienced hardware and software engineers who are actively developing dedicated ALS communication solutions.

BirgerMind® team participated in the prestigious EIT JumpStarter Competition 2021, where 548 teams from 32 countries tried their hand, but only 42 received a chance to pitch in front of the jury of experts and compete in the EIT Jumpstarter Grand Final. It is therefore our honour to announce that the BirgerMind® team won the first prize of the "EIT Jumpstarter – Health Category", a joint program by EIT Health, EIT RawMaterials, EIT Food, EIT Innoenergy, EIT Urban Mobility and EIT Manufacturing. KICs are supported by the EIT, a body of the European Union.
