International matchmaking event on life sciences “Life-on-Chip”
The Enterprise Europe Network Flanders invites international researchers and companies for a unique event stimulating innovation cross-overs between medical technologies, biotechnologies and regenerative medicine.
The event will take place in Leuven (Belgium) on February 22nd. The matchmaking is intended for Business-to-Business, as well as for Science-to-Business.
The conference focuses on the cross-fertilization potential between semiconductor technologies, micro/nano-electronics, microsystems and microfluidics, in-vitro diagnostics, biotech markers, bioassays and cell interactions, bio-informatics and data analytics, single cell diagnostics, tissue engineering, regenerative medicine and 3D printing leading to a new class of in-vitro diagnostics devices and point-of-care devices.
They can be used for novel healthcare solutions in personalized medicine, e.g. by developing innovative diagnostics – therapeutics combinations. Looking further ahead in the future, new functionalities can be added by also inserting living cell structures into these diagnostics devices.
