COWIN at the MNBS Cluster Meeting 2011
The 5th cluster workshop of European Commission (EC) funded projects on Micro-Nano-Bio Convergence Systems (MNBS) is co-organised by the European Commission and IKERLAN a private not-profit Technological Research Centre in the north of Spain and will take place in April 5 & 6, 2011 in Mondragón, Spain.
Micro-Nano-Bio Convergence Systems is a major domain within the field of Microsystems & Smart Systems Integration, which is being supported by the European Commission under the Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) priority. The EU-funded projects in this domain focus on advanced systems by developing and integrating converging micro-nano-bio and information & communication technologies. The MNBS cluster includes projects for "in-vitro" testing and for "in-vivo" interaction with the human body as well as analytical systems for environment and food applications.

OPTIMIZING THE PATHWAY TO COMMERCIALIZATION
Micro-Nano-Bio Convergence Systems (MNBS) projects are developing quite interesting and attractive technologies. The take-up of these innovations toward commercialization is an important challenge for the European Community. Due to the high scientific quality level of these promising projects, the focus of the MNBS cluster workshop this year will be in "The Road to the Commercialization".
COWIN, Coordination and Support Action for the FP7, will participate to this event to provide its support to the commercialization of FP6 and FP7 research results. COWIN is dedicated to find best partners and advanced technologies as well as business support for value creation. COWIN’s initiative is based on individual support for FP6 and FP7 projects and access to its Innovation Network composed of end-users, industrials, regulatory bodies, research centers, public and private investors.
COWIN will contribute to the MNBS cluster workshop in handling a panel discussion on the road to commercialization with 2 key note speakers:
Mr Rik Thijssen, Manager Business Development, Directeur Vitens Solutions, will share his own experience in bringing a lab on chip diagnostic to the market by presenting the Legyon Case Study.
COWIN is also offering free consultancy for FP6 and FP7 research projects. Dedicated meetings and interviews will be organized on demand. You just have to register to take this opportunity (email@example.com).
