A strategic goal in the series of Micro-nano-Bio Systems (MNBS) Concertation & Consultation workshops is the identification of possible collaboration topics between the EU-funded projects in this domain. In order to address this goal, the 6th MNBS concertation workshop focuses on particular issues the research projects face when trying to "land in the real world": creating the supply chain
Each project should provide a position paper and an oral presentation trying to address this particular objective. Furthermore in order to serve this workshop objective, lectures would be given from keynote speakers from certain application areas. It is expected the project presentations and keynote speakers presentations will stimulate a fruitful discussion that would result in the development of further synergies towards the further penetration of MNBS in the economy and therefore further strengthen the position of the EU based companies in the related global market.
The MNBS workshop is rather an open discussion forum than a dissemination event. Position papers and presentations should contain only essential technical details and focusing on the System Integration, System Validation and the Real World applications. Also, as it is an open forum with the participation of external, to the cluster, stakeholders, therefore the projects should avoid including confidential information on their paper or presentation.
The position papers and related oral presentations of MNBS projects should include the following information in order to facilitate the discussion and to address the targeted objectives:
1. The objectives of the project and consortium composition.
2. Technical achievements of the last year that are conferring market advantage to this project.
3. Analysis of the supply chain (from material supplier to final user or prescribers):
A. Description of the different steps (a diagram is preferred)
B. Example of companies or institution serving the different steps and identification of gaps.
C. Problems in the supply chain (for example lack of standard, common language, interest, etcetera). Examples are welcome
Position Paper Length: 4 pages including figures and a small number of references if any. Please use Calibri 11pt, single line spacing and set margins to 2cm at all sides.
