The animal health data platform

The platform’s core mission is to combat the increased resistance to anti-parasiticides and reduce the unnecessary reliance on worm treatments by the agriculture sector, as a whole. Micron Agritech is also keen to protect the limited medicinal arsenal currently in place to combat these diseases while monitoring the prevalence of resistance on farms in Ireland and the UK. The first product, the Micron Kit allows veterinarians to conduct on-site, rapid parasite testing on animals using their mobile phones, delivering results in minutes.


The team believes computer vision and rapid diagnostics will drastically reduce the time, cost and resources expended on dosing methodologies while amplifying farm efficiency. This will also become a rich and valuable data set that can be used to leverage unique insights into animal health trends.

We look forward to working with Daniel, Tara, Sean and the Micron team.

“Our goal is to make our platform accessible to vets across the globe, starting with penetration across the Irish and UK markets, which will combat the build up of medication resistance, while giving farmers
and vets tools to monitor animal health, improve the lives of their animals while increasing productivity.

Helping manufacturing industries lose weight

PlasmaBound’s Controlled Polymer Ablation (CPA) technology empowers global industry to achieve their sustainability goals, particularly in carbon reduction & battery range extension.

Fundamentally, PlasmaBound’s CPA enables high-speed bonding of ultra-lightweight fibre-reinforced materials in a manner where it will effectively take on a role similar to welding in metals.  This will collapse operational cycle times, extend shelf-life, and reduce manufacturing waste streams, all the while improving ultimate bond strengths.

Thus empowering industries from aerospace to transport and more, to achieve their sustainability goals, particularly in carbon reduction & battery range extensions.

We are excited to continue our rapidly accelerating journey toward having sustainable lightweight materials as standard on vehicles, structures and devices. Right now these are limited by cost and complexity to high-tech applications, or premium price points, with limited real environmental impact.  Pushing recyclable composites into mainstream mass-production will move the dial on all our efforts for a sustainable tomorrow..” Alan Barry – CEO.

Giving developers privacy tools to launch with one-click from their cloud environment – significantly reducing the barrier of entry to PETs.

It is no secret that data privacy is a major challenge for organisations and that privacy tools for developers are still early.

The newly popularized domain of privacy-enhancing technologies (PETs), from homomorphic encryption to secure enclaves may play a crucial role in the future of this space, and we believe the Oblivious team is well placed to develop these.

The team at Oblivious are already thought leaders in academia through their work with the UN & Oxford University, and Robert (CEO & Co-Founder) shares his thoughts;

Too often when we think of security and privacy, it feels like another cost that needs to be absorbed by data owners. A technical bureaucracy of sorts. However, what the team and I have found is quite the opposite; projects, collaborations, and partnerships that were previously redlined are now getting the go-ahead!”

We are all excited to be partnering with Robert and Jack to support their vision to empower developers everywhere to deliver real privacy in the digital age.

Emergency braking systems can only measure approximately 40 meters ahead or one second reaction time at high speeds.

Currently, there are 1,350,000 road deaths every year, 50m injuries at an annual cost of over $2 trillion. In the US alone car accidents cost 2% of GDP.  94% of those accidents are caused by human error, errors current accident prevention systems cannot stop. Today’s emergency braking systems can only measure approximately 40m ahead or 1 second reaction time at highway speeds. To perceive, predict, and prevent accidents you need to 10x the capability of these systems and Provizio’s Accident Prevention Technology Platform combines proprietary vision sensors and machine learning to do just that. The radar backboned, AI on-the-edge sensor suite with ultra-long-range and foresight capabilities can prevent collisions at high speed and in all weather conditions.

“One point three five road deaths to zero drives everything we do at Provizio. We have put together an incredible team that is growing daily. AI is the future of automotive accident prevention and Provizio 5D radars with AI on-the-edge are the first step towards that goal.” Barry Lunn

Car safety focus has until now largely been on a reactive basis or with prescriptive safety measures, these merely minimise damage to passengers, they do not stop the crash from occurring. To prevent accidents advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) need to have greatly increased range and object discrimination capability to see danger long before they currently do. 

CeSiriusXT has developed and manufactures a soft x-ray microscope, which is marketed primarily to researchers working in disease research and drug discovery.

From an initial team of three co-founders, SiriusXT has grown a team of highly-skilled physicists, engineers, scientists and entrepreneurs to develop the SXT100 – the first commercial, laboratory-based, soft x-ray microscope.

Through past and ongoing collaboration with the UCD, School of Physics, Spectroscopy Group, the Conway Institute of Biomolecular and Biomedical Research, the Synchrotron-based soft x-ray microscopy community as well the many early adopters of soft x-ray imaging, the SiriusXT team is commercialising a disruptive and innovative solution for whole cell imaging that will help to accelerate progress in the fields of disease research and drug discovery.

Eblana was established out of a common desire to commercialise a scalable laser manufacturing technology which had the capacity to drive down the cost of high performance, single wavelength lasers for diverse mass market applications.

Eblana Photonics has its origins in advanced research programs in photonics involving Ireland’s leading Universities and Research Centres including Trinity College Dublin and the National Microelectronics Research Centre (now Tyndall National Institute). The company was founded in 2001 by Dr. James O’Gorman and Prof. John Hegarty both of whom had carried out research in lasers for data communications at Bell Laboratories (the R&D arm of AT&T). Prior to establishing the company, James had managed the Optronics Ireland facility at Trinity College, Dublin whereas John went on to be appointed Trinity’s provost.

Eblana has solid links with Trinity College Dublin, Dublin City University, Tyndall National Institute and other global centres of expertise in laser physics and semiconductor device fabrication. In addition, our pivotal role as the lead supplier of laser components to EU sponsored research projects means that we remain at the forefront of technological developments in photonic systems for advanced communications and other sectors.
