Bio Inspire sensors: integration and testing 

April 24-26, 2023

This training module of the BioInspireSensing project will take place in 4Dcell in Paris next April under the supervision of Dra. Patricia Davidson

This module is devoted to introducing all technologies around current and future bioMEMS industry Expected outcomes: ESRs will learn: i) Biodegradable materials; ii) flexible conducting polymers; iii) implantable sensors; iv) nanomechanical sensing; v) ultra-high sensitivity biomarker detection technologies; vi) cantilever sensors; vii) microfluidic & Organ-on-Chip technologies; viii) Preclinics, animal modelling and translational medicine. 


Transferable skills workshop

February 20-24, 2023

This training module of the BioInspireSensing project will take place in Zymbol S.L in Barcelona next February under the supervision of Dra. María Fátima Lucas. 

Industrial skills training will be focused on to scientific breakthroughs with commercial models, which is a critical driving factor for biomed industrial innovation. ESRs will learn: i) Gender issues; ii) Storytelling & pitching; iii) Spin-off creation. iv) Business development; v) Public and private fund raising; vi) Patent writing; vii) Understanding market needs; vii) Entrepreneurship; viii) Boot strapping & design thinking approaches; ix) Business model importance; x) IP protection strategies 

Initial workshop

November 9-11, 2022 

First international workshop to attract external participants in Groningen. External renowned scientist and important companies of the field will be invited. The ESRs will present their results to the scientific and relevant industrial community; in addition, a number of top scientists working in the field will be invited to give key-note lectures.

Summer School

June 21-24, 2022 

The last 21-24th of June, BioInspireSensing Project celebrated a Summer school at the University of Warsaw (Poland). During one week our early stage researchers participated in trainings and lectures about electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, biodegradable polymers and biosensors under the supervision of experts in the field. They also had the chance to visit Warsaw, a bustling metropolis that combines tradition with modernity.

1st Training Module on Ion Channels

April 4-8, 2022 

The first training module of the BioInspireSensing project took place in the University of Leuven on April 4-8 under the supervision of Professors Thomas Voets (KU Leuven) and Stephan Kellenberger (Univ. of Lausanne). Thanks to this training, all the early stage researchers got access to specific courses about ion channels under the supervision of experts in the field. These lessons included electrophysiology, sensing ion channels, families and regulation. In addition, they enjoyed visiting some of the most representative monuments of the city.

Students Kick-Off Meeting 

January 27-28, 2022 

The Students Kick-Off Meeting of the BioInspireSensing project took place on January 27-28, under the organization of the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC), in Barcelona. During these days, the members could assist to presentations from both the students and project partners, visit the UPC research centers, assist to a workshop about "Micromasculinities", take part in the activity "Hands on polymer characterization" about the synthesis, deposition and characterization of thin films polymers; and enjoy a guided tour in La Pedrera, an iconic building of the city.
