Jawslab idea is born
During our PhDs, we faced the challenge of properly collecting our scientific data. Like many scientists, we could not find a simple and time-saving digital solution. So we came up with the idea to develop our own solution.
At the beginning of 2018, we are launching the first prototype that includes our agenda module in two scientific departments of the Lausanne area. The prototype allows to manage dozens of scientific equipments, to generate usage reports and to attach to each event notes that are compiled in an electronic laboratory notebook.
At the end of 2019, the technology transfer office of the University Hospital of Vaud (CHUV) grants us a subsidy to develop the prototype. The first algorithms allowing to automate tasks appear. The prototype is enhanced with a project manager allowing the user to classify notes more efficiently.
In early 2020, at the start of the first wave of COVID-19, we are integrating the startup acceleration program. Our vision is significantly broadened, and we are reaching out to more researchers to better understand their problems in order to provide the right solutions.
December 2020, we receive a grant from the digital FIT. The first quarter of 2021 will be dedicated to the development of our MVP. Great functionalities are to be released, the protocol manager, the connected paper laboratory notebook, the optimization of our digital laboratory notebook...
In the third quarter of 2021, a first version of the software should be released in order to allow as many people as possible to adopt our solution.
