Company Background

Founded in 2021, Detectium stands as a Finnish startup born from a collaboration between three key partners: EIT Digital, Business Finland, and Aalto University. Our shared objective is to mitigate industrial fire-related casualties through the innovative application of digital twinning technology and AI.

As part of our journey, Detectium secured funding from the EIT Digital Open Innovation Factory 2023 program, marking a pivotal innovation activity within the digital industry domain. Additionally, in 2023, we received crucial support from Business Finland, enabling dedicated research and development efforts toward our solution.

What is a Digital Twin?

A digital twin is the digital counterpart of a physical asset that specifically works with real-time data fed by sensor systems to record and analyze the real-time structural and environmental parameters of a physical asset. This is done for the purpose of performing highly accurate simulations and data analytics.
