Call for Project Applications to Solve Challenges in Organ-on-Chip Technology
Purpose of the call
The development of Organ-on-Chip technology includes challenges in the fields of technical engineering, biomedical technology, and their integration. Solving these challenges often requires a multidisciplinary approach. hDMT encourages junior researchers to submit a project application about a challenge that they have encountered in their research, including plans to solve or overcome that challenge.
Conditions for the project
- The application team consists of at least two junior researchers (PhD students and/or postdocs) from different hDMT partner organisations.
- Effective collaboration between members of the application team takes place. This means, for example, exchange of expertise or technology for an integrative approach.
- The project aims to solve or overcome technical challenges in Organ-on-Chip research.
- The project has a maximum duration of 18 months.
- The most promising project will receive a research budget of € 5.000, to be used for travel, accommodation and/or materials.
A two-page application of free format includes:
- Names and affiliation of the applicants.
- Description of the challenge encountered.
- Plan to solve or overcome the challenge, including expected results.
- Short description of expected expenditure for which the research budget of € 5.000 will be used.
The deadline for submission is 1 March 2019. Proposals can be submitted to hDMT via firstname.lastname@example.org.
The applications are evaluated by a scientific jury consisting of:
- Nikolas Gaio, TU Delft
- Andries van der Meer, UTwente
- Femke de Vrij, Erasmus MC
The most promising application, with regard to deliverables, feasibility and collaboration, will receive a research budget of € 5.000. Evaluation results will be communicated by 1 April 2019.
