The 7th Annual Concertation and Consultation Workshop on Micro-Nano-Bio Convergence Systems, MNBS 2013, will take place from 24th-25th September 2013, in Cork, Ireland.

This year’s event will be hosted and co-organised by Tyndall National Institute on behalf of the European Commission and is an excellent opportunity to

• diffuse and exchange information on research & development results and innovative solutions from EC-funded projects and other initiatives in Europe.
• identify synergies and possible collaborations to tackle critical issues covering the full value chain from R&D to exploitation.
• meet with key representatives from industry, research, users and the European Commission,
• take on an active role in defining research priorities and roadmaps for future research and in the forthcoming EC programme for research and innovation, Horizon 2020.

MNBS 2013 will emphasise on innovation and technology implementation for improving European competitiveness and citizen‘s life. The programme includes oral and poster presentations from running and finished R&D projects, coordinated and support actions presentations and invited sessions, bringing technologies and solutions providers closer to business and to end-users, technology roadmaps and ideas to build the innovation supply chain.

This year's annual Consultation and Concertation Workshop on Micro-Nano-Bio Convergence Systems,  will for the first time be held in conjunction with the EPoSS General Assembly & Annual Forum 2013.

The joint 3-day event will be held 24th - 26th September 2013, with

MNBS 2013 on 24th - 25th September 2013, and

EPoSS General Assembly & Annual Forum 2013 on 25th -26th September 2013.

 

Poster & Demonstrator Exhibition

Participants are invited to exhibit and present posters and demonstrators on Smart Systems research, products and technologies.  Since the space for posters and demonstrators is limited, the organisers will follow a first come, first serve policy. Posters should be in A0 portrait format and need to be printed and brought to the venue.

This year the organisers explicitly invite the Smart Systems community to bring demonstrators, and particularly encourage "live“ demonstrations in the exhibition room. 

 

COWIN Marketplace

Parallel to MNBS 2013 and the EPoSS Annual Forum 2013, COWIN organisesa COWIN Marketplace and COWIN Tutorials with selection of topics leading to success for innovative projects.

Dedicated to encourage the commercial exploitation of Smart Systems technologies developed in the course of FP6 and FP7 research projects, COWIN Marketplace is an excellent opportunity for you to benefit from synergies in terms of:

  • Networking with technology brokerage, potential partners and customers through one o one meetings pre-qualified for you;
  • Setting-up new collaboration for innovation projects through the new instruments the EC is developing in Horizon 2020

With COWIN Marketplace, you optimize your time schedule while multiplying contacts with relevant partners or potential customers in your fields of interest. COWIN also facilitates your access to funding opportunities to accelerate your development and strengthen your leadership. In parallel of the Marketplace, COWIN is organizing training sessions to give you key information on best practice in setting up successful collaborations and exploitation of innovative research results.

 

Programme

Throughout the 3-day event, there will be a poster and demonstrator exhibition that will illustrate Smart Systems projects, and showcase innovative products and technologies. A COWIN Marketplace will be organised on all three days, and attendees will have the opportunity of guided site visits of the facilities at Tyndall National Institute. Please follow this link to the EPoSS full programme.

MNBS Projects-Innovation Sessions
The objective of the sessions is to identify and share best practices on the innovation process. How to Identify and address the key issues (e.g. stakeholders requirements and supply chain, key competitive value, manufacturing and industrialisation, regulation and standardisation) for making an MNBS project an innovation success story is the challenge of the cluster, even more now that we enter in a new era of "integrated" research & innovation towards Horizon 2020, the new 7 years Framework Program. A panel discussion will allow the exchange of ideas among the audience, summarise the contributions and draw conclusions.
