Organ-on-chip technology and the Dutch National Research Agenda
Organ-on-a-chip technology is one of the 140 items (scientific questions) in the Dutch National Research Agenda. Question 101 says: Can we design models of the human body and use smart technology for health, food and toxicity research and minimise animal testing at the same time?
The National Research Agenda contains the research questions that academic research will focus on in the coming years. It consolidates the strengths of different parties to give a boost to the collaboration between academics, industry and civil society organisations. Until 1 May 2015, everybody in the Netherlands could submit his or her questions to research. 11,700 questions were submitted. The questions were assessed for usefulness and brought together in themes.
