EUROoC 2019 is the official symposium of the European organ-on-chip society

EUROoCS – The European organ-on-chip society was launched at the third International Organ-on-Chip Symposium, held on 8 and 9 November 2018 at the University of Technology in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. The Society will encourage development and coordination of Organ-on-Chip research in Europe in support of better health for all. Membership will be open from 2019 to all researchers in the field, providing access benefits to the pending digital Organ-on-Chip platform, the annual meeting and the future society journal. The next annual meeting will be the EUROoC 2019 in Graz.

EUROoC Conference

The aim of this workshop series is to gather the research leaders in Europe in the emerging field organs-on-chip (OoC) with a special focus on young and upcoming scientists. The extremely interdisciplinary field of OoC research is rapidly growing while new and innovative systems are constantly being developed. However, a variety of engineering challenges are remaining, which the OoC field has to address as a whole to enable a sustainable growth of this breakthrough technology. Hence, we see a need for a scientific meeting focused on the engineering challenges in the process of designing, fabricating, and implementing microphysiological cell culture systems addressing topics such as microfabrication of 3D matrices, integration of miniaturised sensors, microfluidic interfacing, cellular engineering, parallelization and automation. The EUROOC meeting series aims to fill this need and provide a platform for an interdisciplinary exchange. Such a focused meeting series is needed as the research field by nature is very diverse, spanning topics such as developmental biology, drug delivery, 3D cell cultures, organoids, organ-specific models and regulatory aspects
