EPOSS Forum 2013


COWIN  Marketplace during the joint event of MNBS and the EPoSS General Assembly & Annual Forum

On September 24 - 26, 2013 in Cork, Ireland


This year, the 7th Annual Concertation and Consultation Workshop on Micro-Nano-Bio Convergence (MNBS 2013) and the EPoSS General Assembly & Annual Forum held for the first time a joint event.

The joint event is an excellent opportunity for the Smart Systems community to benefit from synergies in terms of:

•    community building , networking and brokerage, as well as
•    opinion building and consolidation of a joint strategy towards Horizon 2020.

By co-locating the EPoSS Annual Forum, with its high percentage of participants from industry, and the MNBS Workshop which traditionally attracts many representatives from research organisations, the joint event is covering the full value chain from education, through basic research, to successful product launch.
