Saxony supports Senorics with two million euros
The Dresden-based start-up Senorics receives money from the Free State of Saxony for the development of special sensors.
On Monday, Saxony's Minister of Economic Affairs Martin Dulig (SPD) handed over the funding notification from the Sächsische Aufbaubank to Senorics. The start-up will receive two million euros in support for the development of novel photonic sensors for substance analysis.
The money will be used to set up a pilot plant in Dresden. Senorics is researching sensors that can, for example, measure the sugar content in fruit or the moisture in paper. Until now, such analyses have had to be carried out in laboratories. With the small and inexpensive sensors, such checks can become more suitable for everyday use. "Senorics is an excellent example of the innovative strength of Saxony as a business location," Dulig said in a statement. "I am proud that we can support another spin-off of Dresden University of Technology on its way to industrial production here." Senorics was founded in 2017 and employs 40 people.
The Free State of Saxony has been funding start-ups from the "Key Enabling Technologies" category for four years. So far, almost 50 million euros have been raised for this purpose.
