DIATOMIC – funding opportunities for microelectronics innovations (14:00 – 14:45 @Amerikana)

DIATOMIC (http://diatomic.eu/): Sparking the atomic fusion of business with technology

A large percentage of the European SMEs and mid-caps from all sectors have limited knowledge of what smart electronics and smart systems can do. The situation is aggravated by the fact that the “Advanced Micro-Electronics (AME) and Smart System Integration (SSI)” have great potential in the health, agrifood and manufacturing sectors – all of which are under-digitized and of prime importance for the European society and the economy.

Starting from 15 March 2018, DIATOMIC, the EU-funded network of digital innovation hubs, will distribute EUR 1.5 M to European SMEs, midcaps and competence centres.

DIATOMIC invites small consortia to design, develop, experiment and market innovative applications, which will facilitate the take-up of electronic components, sensors, smart objects and systems in the health, agrifood and manufacturing sectors. DIATOMIC offers up to €200.000 funding per experiment, including advanced technology testbeds, as well as tailored business support to fast-track design, development and prototyping of market-driven products and services. During the Workshop, eligibility criteria will be presented as well as funding scheme of 1 500 000 EUR per call. In addition to this, attendees will get a chance to explore possibilities offered through DIATOMIC One-stop Shop, where they can showcase competences and partner up with leading SMEs and mid-cap companies and competence centres around Europe.

ETF UB, FTN UNS, MF UB, BIOSENSE: “Fluids on the chip” – Microfluidics workshop (12:00 – 14:00 @Club DOB)

The workshop is dedicated to promoting the multidisciplinary field of microfluidics which deals with the behaviour, control and precise manipulation of fluids flowing through the channels of small dimensions. Different application concepts of microfluidics are becoming increasingly popular in medical diagnostics, molecular biology, biophysics, and chemistry where the use of minute volumes can have a key significance. Thanks to microfluidics you can diagnose a patient’s disease immediately at the point-of- care, quickly analyse DNA, examine the behaviour of a single cell, synthesize nanoparticles, etc., and do all that on a pocket-sized chip.

One of the most important advantages of microfluidics is the affordability of numerous techniques for prototyping microfluidic chips. Join our workshop and:

  • learn how to fabricate a functional microfluidic chip using a toy for children and office supplies
  • discover how fluids behave at the microscale

Workshop leaders: Željko Janićijević, Milica Janković, Sanja Kojić, Dajana Milićević, Jovana Lazarević, Milan Raković

BIOSENSE: “Printed past” – 3D printing in archaeology workshop (14:00 – 15:00 @Club DOB)

Dedicated to the relationship towards past in contemporary society, this workshop uses techniques of digital record and 3D fabrication applied to targeted issues of protection and promotion of archaeological heritage. Objects discovered by archaeological excavations are frequently unavailable in public domain, for their safety and preservation; however, with limited access to archaeological finds, possibilities to interpret ancient communities that created these objects, diminish. Consequently, archaeological heritage becomes distant to modern day individual – in other words, becomes irrelevant.

Join this workshop and take a dive with us in the world of 3D scanning and printing technologies. Get in touch with the archaeological heritage of Serbia and find out how the new technologies can bridge the gap between ancient times and today.

Workshop leaders: Jugoslav Pendić and Slobodan Birgermajer
