Last week, we introduced you to the people that will take the stages of The Collider 2018, coming from renowned research centres and outstanding professional backgrounds. Needless to say that we are thrilled by the perspective of being surrounded by such an upmarket talent for the next six months. Thus, we have placed all our will an effort into turning this journey into a memorable and successful experience for everyone.

But today, we are for once removing the spotlight from participants and focussing on the other true protagonists of The Collider 2018: the onboarding technologies. We can now officially announce that the new edition welcomes 10 technologies with the greatest potential from over 250 candidacies, each of which has gone through a thorough assessment by an expert’s committee evaluating factors such as readiness to market, industry impact and protectability.

Without further ado, meet the final selection of technologies entering The Collider 2018:
