This year's third Meet & Match took place at the Novotel in Karlsruhe, Germany on October 20, 2011. About 12 presentations were held by representatives from different companies and universities out of the trinational BioValley: Northwest Switzerland, Alsace in France and South Baden in Germany. This Meet & Match meeting has been a great success thanks to interesting talks and a very attentive audience.
An informal get-together in a relaxed atmosphere enabled lively discussions and active match making at our last Meet & Match meeting on Microfluidics, Lab-on-a-chip systems in Karlsruhe. Over 50 guests gathered around this challenging subject and presented their work and know-how. The program involved presentations about “Microfluidic Systems - Fabrication and Applications”, “Disposable Polymer Lab-on-a-Chip Platforms with Integrated Lasers”,” Multiparameter Monitoring in Cell Culture”, etc.This event is aiming at bringing together academia and industry interested in exchanging knowledge and establishing collaborations in a tri-national manner. The next Meet & Match will take place in March 2012 in Strasbourg, France. Speakers and guests will be invited depending on the topic. The Meet & Match is free of charge.
