Month 8 & ESR Kick-off Meeting was organized by the Graz University of
Technology and took place on 1st of July 2019 at the Institute of
Analytical Chemistry and Food Chemistry. All beneficiaries, all recruited ESRs
and almost all partner organisations were able to attend in person.
was combined with the first seminar on Team Science and Communication.
participants attended the EUROoCS 2019 conference, that took place the
following two days. https://euroocs.eu/
The 2nd European Organ-on-Chip Conference – EUROoC 2019 is coming to Graz, Austria on 2-3 July 2019!
The EUROoC 2019 is a scientific meeting focused on the challenges in the process of designing, fabricating, and implementing microphysiological cell culture systems addressing topics such as microfabrication of 3D matrices, integration of miniaturised sensors, microfluidic interfacing, cellular engineering, parallelization and automation.
Online registration will close May 31, 2019.
The EU-funded project ORCHID presented its first interim roadmap report entitled: ‘Organ-on-Chip in Development: Towards a European roadmap for Organ-on-Chip’ during the International Organ-on-Chip Symposium on November 8-9 2018 in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. On 28th March 2019 this report was handed over to representatives of IMI and ECSEL Joint Undertakings in Brussels.
This report surveys the current landscape in the research, development, applications and market opportunities for Organ-on-Chip devices to establish the pillars of a European OoC ecosystem. Based on a bibliometric study, a market analysis, expert interviews, and panel discussions held at the ORCHID Vision Workshop (Stuttgart, 23 May 2018), this report outlines presently unmet needs, key challenges, barriers and perspectives of the field, and finally proposes recommendations towards the definition of a European roadmap that could render OoC systems (OoCs) realistic models of human (patho)physiology in the near future.
