The project partners are two Berlin University Institutes that realise work packages focused on research. A small innovative company – Charité Berlin spin-off takes care of the industrial research and commercial application of the project's results. Last, but not least a middle-sized company from outside of Berlin, which as a market distributor, on the project's interest market, with successful and well placed products, assures the project client orientation and ability to integrate.
