New technology requires new knowledge

In AmiNIC we know that when working with new technology and need state-of-the-art knowledge, you must go to the source. From the get-go, we have been working with Southern Danish University and Fraunhofer Institute in Germany in developing the sensor technology. With Technological Institute in developing the chemical binder, as well as Force Technology regarding hygienic design and electronics. Furthermore, we have been cooperating with Århus University, Copenhagen University and Danish Meat Research Institute regarding validation of technology: Study of microbiology, chemical compounds and a sensory expert panel assessment.

It all began with an idea about a sensor for measuring freshness and expiration, developed by PhD in physics Jeanette Hvam and PhD in biology Elizabeth Robertson. Elizabeth chose to continue as a scientist. Jeanette founded the company AmiNIC ApS in collaboration with the competent and commercially talented Jesper Haugaard. In the following time the owners circle was expanded with profiles who have expert knowledge – Bjarne Dahl – as well as experience in international marketing – Martin Vasarhelyi. Recently, as representative for a private investor, Michael Løvbjerg from LogiCon Nordic og Peter Madsen from Syddansk Innovation joined the team.
