The Future of Health Technology: Lab on Chip & Diagnostics platform meeting

To support innovations in the healthcare domain at the crossroads of the Key Enabling Technologies of biotechnology and digital technologies, DSP Valley and FlandersBio are launching 3 separate platforms:

  • one on smart implants,
  • one on (bio)medical imaging and
  • one on lab-on-chip & diagnostics.

On 25 April we organise the second meeting of the LoC & Diagnostics platform following the very successful kick off on 31 January in Mechelen.

This second meeting starts with 5 minute pitch presentations by companies and research departments to highlight their specific expertise and interest in the platform. These presentations will be followed by an introduction on the challenges and lessons learned designing lab on chip applications. Afterwards two workshops will delve a bit deeper into the LoC & diagnostics ecosystem, value chain & markets.

Do your activities fit into the value chain of Lab on Chip & Diagnostics, then join us in further building this platform and register via the registration form below before April 21st. The participation fee is 25 euro* for members of FlandersBio & DSP Valley (including academia & government) and 50 euro* for non-members. (* VAT Excluded)

Note: For the meeting on 25 April we have no presentation slots left. These were already filled at the occasion of the call linked to the first platform meeting (31/01). However you can still indicate your interest to present at one of the next platform meetings.

This event is held within the framework of the XKET4HEALTH-project, funded by VLAIO, and executed by DSP Valley & FlandersBio in collaboration with AnSem, Biocartis, Cochlear and NxP.
