Microfluidic Event in the North of Spain
The 19th of October , BIOARABA – Conference on Research and Innovation(the 17th Conference on Research OSI UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL ARABA / BIOARABA Research Institute, in collaboration with the Campus of Álava of the UPV / EHU) was held in Vitoria / Gasteiz, more precisely in the Palacio Europa, aimed at people who work on investigation and people who are interested in the topic of BIOTECHNOLOGY.
It has been a seminar directed by professionals who work on investigation and the citizens, who take advantage of the investigations that the companies carry out.
That is why, the citizens have had a great importance in this seminar, letting them choose the principal topic of the event, creating a bridge between professional people and stakeholders that do not know much about the topic, but moreover, are interested on it.
The seminar had two important points. On one hand, there were conferences where professionals take part, which were organized in “Workshops” and everybody give their opinion and experience about the topic. We worked on “NEW ANALYTICAL TECHNOLOGIES IN HEALTH”, been expertly managed by Arantxa Goicolea from UPV/EHU.
On the other hand, and as mentioned before, the citizens take part on the annual investigation award ceremony and they are also able to take part in the meeting of “Healthy aging, a health social and technological perspective” where the experts shared their opinion and knowledge about the topic.
One of our team member took part in this workshop talking about “New analytical technologies in health” together with, for example, Carmen Zugaza (Osakidetza),Javier Garaizar (UPV/EHU), Lourdes Basabe(UPV(EHU), Alberto Gómez (UPV), Carolina Núñez Domingo (UPV) or Raúl Pérez González (I+Med) and Jesica Ruiz Pérez (I+Med). Some of the topics discussed where Clinical analysis, immunological diagnosis or microfluidic systems.
