Written by FDM

Morocco won three gold medals at the European Innovation Fair, Euroinvent, held remotely in the city of Iasi in Romania, from May 21 to 23.

This is not the first time Moroccans have brought home prizes from the science fair. The students of Moroccan School of Engineering Sciences (EMSI), representing the country at Euroinvent, received three gold medals for their flagship inventions “Genius water pipeline for buildings”, “Smart micro-wind for highway” and “Smart hospital management”, said an EMSI press release on Saturday.

The “Micro hydro-aeolian production for a position energy building” invention, provides electrical energy at highways or other roads through the introduction of a system merging two types of wind turbines and allowing the transformation and the exploitation of wind energy, noted the same source.

The  “smart micro-wind system for an auxiliary electrical energy production” innovation, aims to provide an auxiliary source of positive electrical energy in buildings through the introduction of a hybrid system composed of three blocks allowing the collection, transformation, and exploitation of hydraulic or wind energy.

As for the “Intelligent, Efficient, and Digital Hospital Management Ecosystem” project, It puts together a secure digital medical system to ensure proper follow-up with patients and efficiently archive medical reports for healthcare workers.

Moreover, the president of EMSI, Kamal Daissaoui,  received the Knight of the Order Prize for Science and Innovation in recognition for “his inescapable commitments in favor of scientific research and innovation”. Daissaoui received the same prize during Euroinvent 2019 when EMSI’s research and development laboratories won two gold medals.

Euroinvent is the largest science exhibition in Eastern Europe. Forty countries participated in Euroinvent 2019 with over 500 inventions and projects. Due to the novel coronavirus crisis, Euroinvent’s organizers opted for an online alternative to the event instead of cancelation or postponement.
