RIS Accelerator Programme in Malta Start-ups supported in 2018
Start-ups supported in 2018.
On April 16 2018 EIT Climate-KIC Hub Malta selected six teams, which later were transformed into new start ups. Their projects are tackling very urgent problems Malta is facing right now, including waste management, traffic circulation, and CO2 emissions. The teams had a chance to pitch their ideas on during the kick-off meeting, which took place in the Malta Life-Science Park on the 6th of June.
The teams are composed of young, qualified, experts that Climate-KIC has brought together, therefore creating a growing community of bright minds that will bring innovation to the area of climate-change related solutions and technologies. It’s this type of project that will make life more sustainable of citizens of Malta, Europe, and even of the whole world.

Our start-up in Malta, VIVACITY LTD, brings an innovative technology for cooling the built environment by mimicking the local ecosystem. The technology uses green roof and green wall systems which act as insulation layers on the building, actively drawing heat out during the hot summer months and reducing heat loss in the winter months. In line with recently revised EU legislation on energy efficiency requirements for buildings, our green roofs and walls significantly improve the energy efficiency of the buildings they are applied to

Off the shelf light fittings are not expensive to buy but are mass-produced and lack that personalized touch that makes any product the more desirable. With the introduction of Rapid Prototyping Technology, mass customization is just as cost effective as mass production. The online platform allows users to modify the shape and form of the light fitting and the back-end algorithm prepares the files for laser cutting, milling or 3d printing. Each job can be fundamentally different from the previous – in shape, size and form.
