CodeIT in EU Champions League for start-ups

Bjørnar Torsnes, CEO i CodeIT

Norske små og mellomstore bedrifter hevder seg internasjonalt og får store tilskudd fra EU. I konkurranse med selskaper fra hele Europa henter fire bedrifter denne måneden til sammen mer enn 65 millioner kroner til å kommersialisere sine innovasjonsprosjekter.

- Det er utrolig gledelig å se norsk næringsliv gjøre det så godt i skarp internasjonal konkurranse. Vi vet at kravene er skyhøye, og jeg vil gratulere Othecos, CodeIT, Voca og Respinor med EU-midler, sier Mona Skaret, direktør for vekstbedrifter og klynger i Innovasjon Norge. - At vi nå klarer å hente stadig mer fra EU er et resultat av en satsing på dette i Innovasjon Norge og i klyngene våre. Oslo MedTech er et eksempel hvor både klyngen selv og bedriftsmedlemmene har kjempesuksess i Horisont 2020. Tildelingene viser igjen at EU og Horisont 2020 er en arena der norsk næringsliv har store muligheter.

EU ønsker å stimulere til innovasjon som kan bidra til å løse de utfordringene verden står overfor. Gjennom Horisont 2020 gir EU drahjelp til løsninger på våre felles samfunnsutfordringer. Dette representerer store og globale markedsmuligheter for næringslivet. EU har kommet med sin bestilling, og norsk næringsliv er med å svare på utfordringene gjennom nyskapende prosjekter som har globalt markedspotensial fra første dag.

Beinhard konkurranse

Dette er bedriftenes øverste liga, og konkurransen om å nå opp er hard. Norske bedrifter viser seg å ha mye å fare med, og har i perioden 2014 til 2016 blitt tildelt 160 millioner kroner fra SMB-virkemiddelet under Horisont 2020. Nå har resultatene fra første runde i 2017 kommet, og fire norske bedrifter har kommet gjennom nåløyet. Til sammen henter de fire mer enn 65 millioner kroner. Det er ny rekord!

CodeIT AS mottok 1,2 millioner euro fra Horisont 2020 i siste runde. - Vi er stolt over å motta denne anerkjennelsen fra Europakommisjonen etter å ha søkt i flere omganger. Med god rådgivning fra blant andre Innovasjon Norge og ordningen Seal of Excellence - som i første fase var en utløsende faktor for å sette i gang søknadsprosessen - har vi endelig fått bekreftelse på at vi er med i EUs Champions League for start-ups, sier Bjørnar Torsnes, CEO i CodeIT.

Pall

Weber Leca Borge ved Fredrikstad har installert en revolusjonerende etikettmaskin for automatisk pallemerking.

Forspranget med CodeIT FlexWipe ligger i teknologi, kompetanse og kreativitet.

FlexWipe har bl.a. innebygget sikkerhetsanordning som eliminerer behov for omfattende

Ved utvikling av FlexWipe er det lagt vekt på:

• Roterende og intelligent oppheng - ingen klemfare
• Meget rask og ekstremt kompakt
• Etikettene kan påføres ujevne overflater
• Kamera verifiserer at etiketter er ok
• Patentert ‘Free Motion Apply’ sørger for at merking er
mulig på tre sider med pall i bevegelse
• Enkel integrasjon med CodeIT Enterprise

Programvaren CodeIT Enterprise

Vi er svært stolte over at Leca Borge er den første bedriften i Norge som har fått installert vår nyutviklede FlexWipe pallemerker, sier teknisk sjef Tommy Eriksen fra CodeIT. Han forventer
seg stor interesse fra markedet for denne innovative løsningen som passer perfekt inn i Industri 4.0 og IoT.
