Jean-Pierre Wolf

February 2014

Jean‐Pierre Wolf received an ERC (European Research Council) Proof of Concept Grant for his project LIPBA "Laser Identification of Pollen and Bacteria in Air".

"This project aims at marketing a new laser based detector for identifying pollens in air, and further develop it for extending its application to the detection and identification of bacteria in air. Key markets are meteorological institutes for pollens and hospitals for bacteria identification, in order to address the problem of nosocomial infections. Business plans have been elaborated and even highlighted within the Mc Kinsey contest "Venture 2012", as one of the 20 finalists over 191 projects. Our bioaerosol detector also participated to the transatlantic campaign "Planet Solar" over the ocean for 6 months, and demonstrated its exceptional reliability and measurement quality. It also provided an extremely broad media coverage and thus worldwide visibility to our project."
