Innovation Hub pitch session: August 31, 2022 from 6 p.m.The innovation hub initiative at IACMAG aims at giving substance to the challenges and innovation in geomechanic conference themes from a more practical and society-oriented point of view. Innovative companies and start ups working in the field of civil and geotechnical engineering are given the opportunity to show their best know-how, solutions and services in front of a wide international and highly recognized audience. Integration of quick and appealing 5-minutes pitches with the following cocktail will be the perfect solution to attract people’s attention and then have time to meet up, have a chat and boost your network of contacts.
Enertun is a novel tunnel precast segmental lining for tunnels constructed by TBM design and patented at Politecnico di Torino (Patent number: 102016000020821) which allows heat to be exchanged with the adjacent ground to produce thermal energy..
Geosolving S.r.l. is an engineering company, previously a spin-off of the Politecnico di Torino (Resolving S.r.l.), that offers advanced and specialized geological and geotechnical consultancies in the fields of slope stability, numerical modelling, innovative remote sensing and monitoring techniques, energy geostructures design, hydraulics, and environmental protection.
Geothermskin is an innovative energy wall system designed and patented at Politecnico di Torino (Patent number: 102019000024604) capable of transforming the underground portions of the buildings into heat exchangers. The system allows the reduction of initial investment costs compared to horizontal geothermal solutions and compared to traditional energy walls.
Optialp is a cutting-edge optical fiber monitoring system to detect automatically potential destructive events including snow avalanches, debris flows, and rockfall impacts. The main advantage of the use of Optialp is the early and distributed detection of the potentially destructive events on their propagation paths.
