We already know which are the finalists who will present their projects on June 17 at the Antiga Fabrica Damm
Following the SpinUOC programme's second round of advice for participants, the expert jury has chosen the following eight projects as the 2020 finalists based on their innovative nature, their feasibility, their team, and their strategic alignment and social impact. The final will be held on June 17
The shortlisted projects are:
·Angular Technologies: a spin-off that provides radio positioning services to obtain a precise 3D position in places that GPS cannot reach.
·Daiprox: protection for people with pacemakers or implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) so that they can take part in sporting activities without risk of damage from getting hit.

·Opground: it connects job opportunities and programmers, automatically searching for them, applying for them and passing the first interview stage. Companies can find and contact the most suitable candidates in under five minutes. The automatic virtual interview replication system allows employers to make connections 60-80% faster than traditional recruiters. It is the first virtual recruiter.
·Whoduniter: an e-learning and development service for companies based on whodunit detective novels. The participants in these activities can hone their social skills and put them to the test in a dynamic, high-impact, immersive learning-by-doing process in a crime-fiction setting.
