Seminar Innovation through polymer microtechnology and visit to imec cleanroom
13-11-2015 :: imec Leuven, Belgium

Organizer: Sirris

Are you active in the development of miniaturized medical devices? Next to the traditional competences in micro and nanotechnology, some other technologies are necessary in the development of electronic medical devices. 

One of these complementary technologies is micromolding and micromachining of plastic precision parts. This technology is important for body mechanical and implantable health devices. 
Learn all about it in this seminar on polymer microtechnology.
The members of FlandersBio and DSP Valley are active within different application domains for microprocessing of plastics: life sciences and smart electronic systems. Biocartis will give a presentation why they need precision plastic technology for molecular diagnostics. 
In the region of Besançon, there are two clusters of companies, called Plastipolis and Pôle des Microtechniques, which are active in the field of microtechnology. A consortium of French knowledge institutes and French companies will introduce the cluster and give some examples of good practices.
Mark Post (University of Maastricht) will give a presentation from a different point of view: 3D-printing of microstructures for food.
The results of the project Change2Micro will be presented by different participating companies from Bootcamp 1 and Bootcamp 2.
Unique possibility: Discover the ballroom type cleanroom at imec during a guided tour!
