Net Market Fluidics is a market approach project for tackling the bottlenecks preventing the deployment of micro and nanofluidics in Europe. Fluidics are characterized by a broad number of research groups and enterprises developing knowledge and technology for many diverse application fields.
The creation of a European network with the main research groups working on these lines will allow researchers to better analyze the main challenges for micro & nanofluidics applications (system integration, manufacturability and affordability) and tackle the bottlenecks preventing its deployment in Europe.
In the network, researchers will share knowledge and overcome the technological limitations through different actions: workshops, meetings, groups of experts and white papers. Participants will come from research centers within the project, Key European institutions and stakeholders within the United States and Asia.
The end users of the micro and nano fluidics technologies, industry, will work with NetMarketFluids through working groups addressing industrial needs, value chain, technical challenges and standardisation and in sectorial workshops where research centers can match their capacities to industrial needs. Net Market Fluidics will then analyse the knowledge and market needs identified in the project and host an investors showcase in June 2017 highlighting new paths to market for micro and nanofluidics technologies.
