Beekeeping in Audi Hungaria

The idea of beekeeping originated from AUDI AG, Audi Hungaria's parent company. In 2015, Audi Hungaria was in the midst of implementing its flora and fauna protection plan thus the beekeeping idea was in line with ongoing developments, and quickly taken up by management. 6 bee colonies with 270,000 bees were installed in September 2015. The bees produce 200-240 kilograms of honey each year, which is branded as Audi Hungaria Premium Honey, and gifted to visitors, as well as purchasable in the gift shop.

Carbon Upcycling

Carbon Upcycling's proprietary, patented technology chemically adsorbs CO2 emissions into exfoliated inorganic solids to create a portfolio of fine nanoparticles. Per tonne of product, their technology sequesters sizable quantities of CO2 and has been proven stable during temperature tests.

First they place powder feed stocks in reactors, then they pressurize it with gaseous CO2 and as a result they gain nanoparticle additives for commercial applications, like concrete, plastics or corrosion coatings.

Safe contact point in elderly home

A contact point was opened at the Zselic Catholic Elderly Home in Zselickislak. The double-entry container, in the middle separated by a glass wall, offers a solution for meeting relatives and residents of the institution even during a coronavirus epidemic.

The investment ensures that the meetings can be secured in such a way that the relatives do not enter the institution and the residents do not leave it during a ban of visiting or a cerfew. They are able to talk using a sound device.

WIShelter Covid-19 Platform

The WIShelter platform streamlines security clearance at border controls and simplifies the process of international entry resulting in reduced risk and improved passenger experience, not only at airports but at tourism destinations as well.

Bicycle traffic counting

At LogLine, they are committed to cycling and livable cities, their aim to make data on urban cycling available to as many developers, operators and designers as possible to make transport facilities safer and more usable. The developed device can measure the position, speed and wheelbase (which allows the vehicles to be distinguished) of the passing cyclist or other vehicle in the cross-section of the road. The system can be installed quickly without damaging the pavement, and also provides the possibility of real-time data monitoring and web display.

Peer-to-peer energy trading based on blockchain technology

An energy trading demonstrator was put into operation as part of the Pebbles project – a practical application under laboratory conditions. Pebbles analyzes and tests the effects of blockchain technology on the energy market. Local peer-to-peer energy trading not only assumes a practical function in controlling the supply and demand of the decentralized energy system. It is also a further indication of the business and monetization opportunities the "energy flexibility market" is already opening up today.

Community Mapping

Community mapping allows citizens to highlight the parts of their environment of interest or concern them.Community maps are built from local knowledge, experience and expertise but they are more than data gathering. The process of discovering the obvious, hidden and potential assets in a community opens possibilities. Mapping is a valuable digital development and empowerment tool.
