Abstract Title: “State of Play of European Micro and Nanofluidics: the Net-Market-Fluidics project”

Abstract: Net Market Fluidics is a market approach for tackling the bottlenecks preve nting the deployment of micro and nanofluidics in Europe. Fluidics are characterized by a broad number of large companies, SMEs, technological centres and research groups developing knowledge and technology for many diverse application in the field.
To connect these professionals and facilitate their information exchange, the last October we launched the first online Market Place – the Net Market Fluidics Network- a new easy, friendly and free channel of communication, already counting with more than 200 registered members. We want you to boost links between experts to identify the key barriers and offer potential solutions. Our task is to make it possible. Our mission is to provide practical, step by step assistance through the on-line market place.
Net Market Fluidics is also committed to share knowledge and dynamite the community through different actions: sectorial workshops, meetings, groups of experts and white papers – Visit us in (netmarketfluidics.eu/) and prepare yourself to be challenged, excited and inspired!

Project Coordinator: ADItech Technology Corporation (aditechcorp.com/) is a private non-profit organization whose main function is to connect science, technology and company, by boosting European collaborations. ADItech focused areas: industry, health, renewable energy and resources and food chain.
Project funded from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement 685775.
