2PCS Solutions GmbH was born from the 2PCS project to bring its innovation to the market. Coordinator Felix Piazolo explains how the team achieved this: “Two thirds of the company are owned by the project’s researchers and developers. They came up with the product, which is very important. It means they’re a lot more enthusiastic and always working to bring it to the market.” And the market is secondary end-users like Red Cross and operators of nursing homes. Following a purely B2B model, it has been crucial for the 2PCS project to maintain a close involvement with professional care organisations throughout.
