A huge thank you to Innovation Origins for the piece they did with our CEO Dr Fiona Edwards Murphy. Learn about the idea behind ApisProtect, how our monitors work and a lot more.
”I want to help as many beekeepers around the world as possible. This technology has the potential to help improve hive outcomes.”
When asked how she thought of the idea for ApisProtect, CEO Dr Fiona Edwards Murphy answered
‘’ I have always been interested in the environment and sustainability, but not specifically in bees. But when I started my PhD in 2013, I actually started learning about bees for the first time. I really wanted to do a PhD in Internet of Things technologies. I also wanted to do something that has a real impact on the real world. I didn’t want to sit in a lab working on a circuit that I would never see what it would eventually be used for. Then there were also many articles about the problems that beekeepers all over the world have. Especially about the colony collapse disorder, a big problem in the US’’CEO Dr Fiona Edwards Murphy
