NGM @ SPIElitho conference for lithography

The SPIE, the International Society for Optics and Photonics, Advanced Lithography + Patterning #SPIElitho, took place in San Jose, California, from 25-29 February. It is the event for the lithography community, both academics and industry to meet and discuss latest trends and future developments.

One of this year’s topics was sustainability and how the community can work on decreasing their carbon, but also PFAS footprint.

At the conference, NGM partner Micro Resist Technology GmbH presented its latest research results and their innovative company.

Lab-on-a-Chip and Microfluidics Europe, 24-25 June 2024, Rotterdam, Netherlands


SelectBIO Lab-on-a-Chip and Microfluidics Europe 2024 now in its 16th year brings together researchers and industry participants from both academia and industry focusing on technology and innovation in the Lab-on-a-Chip (LOAC) and Microfluidics fields.

Presentations will explore the latest advances in the Lab-on-a-Chip and Microfluidics Fields. Focus at this conference will also be given to some of the many applications of Lab-on-a-Chip, from life science research, to taking diagnostics to the point-of-care/point-of-need and body-on-a-chip/organs-on-a-chip.

We focus on LOAC device production technologies, novel designs/technologies for manufacture, as well as the key application areas for LOAC from research to diagnostics as well as 3D-bioprinting and the convergence of microfluidics technologies with biofabrication and 3D-printing as well as deployment of microfluidics technologies in point-of-care testing and global health.

There is an Extensive International Perspective at this Conference with Speakers, Poster Presenters, Sponsors, and Exhibitors from Europe, US, and Asia/Pacific. Running alongside the conference will be an exhibition covering the latest technological advances and associated products and services from leading solution providers within this field from around the world.

Registered delegates will have full access to the co-located and concurrent conference tracks to mix-and-match presentations and maximize networking:

  • Lab-on-a-Chip and Microfluidics Europe 2024
  • Point-of-Care, Biosensors & Mobile Diagnostics Europe 2024
  • Organoids and Spheroids Europe 2024
  • Circulating Biomarkers and Extracellular Vesicles Europe 2024

TechForum Millstatt, 3-7 June 2024, Millstatt, Austria

Join us at TechForum Millstatt as we boost Europe’s academic and industrial competitiveness

TechForum Millstatt brings together experts from academia, industry and policy to discuss current technological advances in miniaturization of biomedical devices, future technological trends and innovation potentials in health and environmental science.

Alongside tech talks, presentations and discussions, TechForum Millstatt sponsors various networking events to facilitate the exchange of ideas, translational efforts and the practical application of research results. In addition, a highlight is BioMakerSpace, our hands-on training offered to students in HTL or university and industry on various aspects including microfluidics fabrication, biosensing strategies, system integration, as well as biology-material interactions and organ-on-a-chip technologies.

For the first time, academic and industry partners are joining forces to bring these topics to picturesque Millstatt am See, a beautiful lakeside town in the heart of the Austrian Alps. Don’t miss this opportunity!

Location: Kongresshaus Millstatt (Carinthia/Austria)

Registration is open! For more information and a preliminary program, visit

TechForum Millstatt is initiated by TU Wien, and co-organized with Graz University of Technology, University of Salzburg, Advanced Microfluidics Initiative, BioNanoNet Forschungsgesellschaft mbH, Silicon Austria Labs GmbH, Infineon Austria Technologies AG, and Austrian Cluster for Tissue Regeneration.

Microfluidics in their PRIME with NGM & Micronit

On 14 September 2023, NextGenMicrofluidics members Anja Haase (JR) and Maciej Skolimowski (Micronit) were invited to speak at the final dissemination event of the H2020 project PRIME entitled, “Microfluidics in their PRIME: Microfluidic Chips, Active Valves, Smart Sensors, and What Comes Next”. The event took place at TUtheSky on the campus of the Technical University of Vienna, where the consortium presented their results alongside others in the field of microfluidics.

At the top-floor location with panoramic views of Vienna, PRIME partners shared their results to invited members of the microfluidics community. Then, Anja Haase presented the project with her talk “NextGenMicrofluidics: Platform for upscaling of microfluidic chips on foil substrates”. Maciej Skolimowski presented “Automation and flow control in microfluidic devices – application examples in Organ-on-a-Chip and medical diagnostics systems”.

In addition, NGM project manager Clemens Wolf (BNN) briefly introduced the Advanced Microfluidics Initiative (AMI) during the networking session.
