The Life Sciences community in Flanders invites international researchers and companies for a unique event stimulating innovation cross-overs between medical technologies, biotechnologies and regenerative medicine. The Enterprise Europe Network Flanders supports this unique event and organizes a B2B along this conference. 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.Researchers and companies in Flanders play a leading role in these domains and are looking forward to joining forces with European partners that are equally innovative and groundbreaking. Our ambition is to bring together international players active in this cross-disciplinary domain, and to help and stimulate them to do business and to set-up new partnerships for cooperative R&D projects. In a nutshell, to speed up the innovation process towards new healthcare solutions!
