The first workshop in the project 'hDMT/NanoInside: Organs-on-Chip Technology Platform' took place at the University of Twente on September 15. Over 40 researchers and representatives from hDMT partners and hi-tech companies participated in this one-day event that was the official kick-off for this hDMT/NanoNextNL-sponsored project. The hDMT/NanoInside project aims to promote standardization and development of common solutions in Organ-on-Chip technology development by promoting collaboration among hands-on researchers and engineers of hDMT partner institutions. This will lead to technical standardization of technology platforms and more streamlined development of new Organ-on-Chip systems. hDMT/NanoInside will run until the end of 2016.

The majority of participants at the workshop were Master's students, PhD candidates, and post-docs. In multiple brainstorming sessions these hands-on researchers defined concrete ideas for collaboration. In the next stages of the hDMT/NanoInside project these ideas will be converted into proposals for pilot projects, some of which will receive funding of up to €6000 per project. In order to further stimulate the interaction between the researchers, follow-up workshops were held at UTwente, TU Eindhoven and TU Delft.
