Salzburg | October 12th, 2015. 

Imagine an easy to use, non-invasive and affordable detection of cancer. Imagine further that it is done by an app. MIROCULUS from Mexico delivers just that: a microRNA detection platform that can accurately diagnose and monitor diseases at a molecular level, without the need of a specialized technician or expensive lab machinery, making microRNA detection more affordable and scalable than ever before. IoT 2.0 – imagine innovation for tomorrow.
According to the global competition of WSA, Mexico is the country for innovative start-ups. 4 out of the WSA winners 2015 come from Mexico and convinced the international Grand Jury.

Making impact on society starts with the youngest. Teaching children robotics to make digital innovation graspable, for example. SNOWBALL from KUWAIT has the potential to solve the lack of motivation in the traditional classroom in primary schools. This flagship project encourages young people to innovate and enter the world of industry and entices them to be productive with a simplified robotics unit they program.


40 Winners from 24 countries, selected from 386 nominations. WSA 2015 once more presents a diameter of innovation from Indonesia to Argentina, from Iceland to New Zealand. Be it a tool for accurate diagnostics of wounds, a webpage to organize international meetings for you or a political think tank, the WSA Winners 2015 offer a vast spectre of digital innovation.

WSA promotes and recognizes the uniqueness of digital innovation with impact on society.  

The WSA winners 2015 will receive their awards at the WSA Global Congress in Shenzhen, China in February 2016. The event will deliver a best practice exhibition of the best digital innovation projects worldwide. The agenda of the WSA Congress will be a compilation of interaction and inspiration, assembling workshops, business blind-dates and infamous keynotes, bringing together UN and governmental representatives, privates sector and innovators.

“To drive meaningful and relevant digital innovation, you have to connect people. With the WSA we recognize innovation of tomorrow already today. This year’s winners are an excellent selection of this momentum, matching local solutions to local needs. Shenzhen will offer the special stage to highlight these masters of innovation”, WSA Chairman Peter A. Bruck states.
