2021 edition of the ‘Putting Science into Standards’ (PSIS) workshop open for registration

Friday, 19 February

The 2021 edition of the 'Putting Science into Standards' (PSIS) workshop will focus on Organ-on-Chip and is now open for registration.
hDMT scientists are involved in the organization of the workshop as members of the Advisory Board.

The 2021 PSIS edition will be focusing on Organ-on-Chip (OoC). This event aims to facilitate the exchange of views on the future development of this technology, its application areas and stakeholder needs in order to identify how European standardization can support its safe, widescale deployment, and by doing so also:

• facilitate their implementation in the current and future regulatory framework;
• support with reliable methods that are even more critical for use of OoC in emergency situations, when drug/vaccine development and testing procedures are necessary, as in the current COVID-19 drug rush;
• strengthen Europe's position as leader in the promotion of more ethical use of animals in testing;
• help European OoC start-ups to increase their reliability and their market share.

For whom: Researchers, Innovators, Industry, Standardisers, Policy makers.

Registration: save your seat and register through the event website.
