What will you learn?
The Conference will allow you to discover the HoliFAB project, the many companies involved and its objectives.
Its 4 sessions will illustrate the different possible processes for:
- The development of new materials and biomaterials for microfluidic analysis devices and organs on chips
- Design optimisation, high-resolution 3D printing processes
These sessions will highlight:
- The possibilities offered by 3D printing and bio-printing to produce complex, high-resolution analytical and biomedical devices
- The multiple biological applications of microfluidics
Who should attend?
Microfluidicians … or not! Industrials, scientists, biologists, students, doctorals and post-doctorals are welcome to discover our project, learn and discuss with our European partners from 10 different companies about the main technologies, materials, processes, and applications that HoliFAB aim to propose.
