Micro-Nano-Bio Convergence Systems – MNBS 2014, 21-22 October 2014, Toulouse, France.

The 8th annual concertation and consultation cluster workshop of European Commission (EC) funded projects on Micro-Nano-Bio Convergence Systems MNBS’14 is co-organized by LAAS-CNRS a Technological Research Centre in southern France and the European Commission. This event, which is open to external to MNBS cluster participants, is an excellent opportunity to:
o diffuse and exchange information on R&D results and innovative solutions from EC-funded projects and other initiatives in Europe,
o identify synergies and collaborations to tackle challenges covering the full value chain from R&D to exploitation,
o meet with key representatives from industry, research, users and the EC,
o take on an active role in defining research priorities and roadmaps for future research and in the Horizon 2020 program for research and innovation.

MNBS 2014 will emphasize on end-users requirements to identify emerging needs in medical diagnostics or theranostics, as well as in environment or food applications with clear objective to bring technologies & solution providers closer to the end-users and business, build the innovation supply chain, and faster implement MNBS solutions into the market. The workshop will include an overview session on running and finished FP7 projects, invited lectures on selected topics and demonstrators, as well as round table discussions. The portfolio of projects currently includes systems and technologies for in vitro testing and for in vivo interaction with the human body, as well as analytical systems for environment and food applications.
