          - Intellectual property management

  • Meeting stakeholders and influencers in 'Grand Challenges' for microfluidics,
  • Promoting their products and services at events and in online directories
  • Building technology and market intelligence portfolios,
  • Participating in a confidential trusting community of experts,
  • Sharing the costs with 15—2- other organizations,
  • Doing more with less.
Each year half the consortium meetings take place in North America and half in Europe
