Nolisys

Engineering & technology

As part of the project First Spin-Off Ni2D, it was decided to create a spin-off company in the form of an SPRL in order to be able to validate more efficiently the market assumptions.  Based on a lean approach, this structure needs to make it possible to evaluate, as closely as possible to the client, the needs that they have for this type of tool and especially the form that it must take for an efficient use.

Working in close collaboration with the FSO project leader, this will guide the research to best meet the requirements of the clients in the development of business tools.

Tiwouh

Social sciences

Tiwouh is a spin-off in the human and social sciences. The company operates an alternative or augmentative communication software solution for speech therapists/speech pathologists as well as people with communication and language disorders - including autism spectrum disorders - and their families. The collaborative platform aims to improve the communication of these patients and their social interactions. It also provides the specialists with an innovative tool, combining adaptive applications with a follow-up from specialised professionals. The platform offers personalised technical and clinical support and will soon develop an online continuing education offer for professionals. Tiwouh thus facilitates interactions within the ecosystem of patients - speech therapists/speech pathologists - families - environment. Visit the website

ANMI

Medical and Health sciences

Contenu ANMI is an API supplier for the production of radiopharmaceuticals labelled with metal radioisotopes. ANMI has developed innovative solutions to facilitate the synthesis of these theranostic tools and to render easier their daily production in hospitals. These solutions are scalable and adaptable to a wide range of peptide or non-peptide radiopharmaceuticals.

Belma Technologies

Engineering and technology

Belma Technologies is a product of the First Spin-off Animaplan project, whose goal was the development of a solution for the administration of hormones to animal models, i.e. implants adapted to animal experimentation in terms of size, form, dosage and release profile of the active ingredient, with a relatively low cost.

Given the proven lack of quality and reliability of products already on the market, and after determining the real needs of all research teams that must administer hormones to their animal models, Belma Technologies was created to provide the community of researchers with a new innovative solution.

Genalyse

Engineering and technology

Following the research partnership between the food laboratory of ULiège, led by Pr Georges Daube, and the spin-off Quality Partner, a license has been transferred to the latter. Due to the specificity of developments and to the nutritional health market, Quality Partner has decided to create a subsidiary of its molecular biology business line to enable it to expand.

OSIMIS

Engineering and technology

Born from the free software Orthanc, medical images management software, Osimis is the first spin-off resulting from a development led within the CHU of Liège. This software was born from a double observation: the increasing use of this type of technique and the dependence of hospitals on manufacturers of imaging devices. Osimis thus ensures the dematerialisation of the transfer of images thanks to Orthanc, whose quality is unanimously

recognised, the software having already been downloaded by more than 15,000 users (hospitals, radiologists, medical specialists...) throughout the world.
