CellPROM Consortium

Europe has an excellent background in nano-, microsystem- and biotechnology in many countries, but in order to maximise the overall impact it needs to strengthen and reinforce that excellence by focusing on specific goals well into reach to be carried out in a 4-year project but showing future perspectives for continued technical development for the rapidly growing biotechnology market.  Complementary specialist groups from all over Europe come together to share their different expertise and results in various areas of nano(bio)technology: material science, biology, biotechnology, nanotechnology, manufacturing technology, cell handling and clinical testing. Each of the partners has specific knowledge in his field and internationally recognised expertise. The collaboration in the CellPROM project, based on the complementarity principle, will lead to long-lasting co-operations between the partners. 

The universities of Lausanne (Switzerland), Barcelona (Spain), Saarbruecken (Germany), Vienna (Austria), Kaiserslautern (Germany), Pavia (Italy), Ljubljana (Slovenia), Tel-Aviv (Israel) and Vilnius (Lithuania) form the scientific backbone of the consortium. The non-profit research institutes of Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft (Germany), Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden), Institute of Experimental Biology and Technology (Portugal), Institute Pasteur (France), Institute of Analytical Sciences, Institute for New Materials, Georg-Speyer-Haus and Max-Planck-Institute for Biophysical Chemistry (all Germany) with their expertise in applied research bridge the gap between basic research towards technical development. The companies Evotec Technologies (Germany), Leister Process Technologies (Switzerland), GeSIM (Germany), Sysmelec (Switzerland), Eurogentec (Belgium), Silex (Sweden), Surface Imaging Systems and AMO (both Germany) with their product portfolio in the nano-, micro- and bio-technology field stand for competitive developments in line with market requirements. The start-ups EURICE and tp21 (both Germany) bring in their expertise in project administration, knowledge dissemination and training, since management is an issue for Integrated Projects of this size, educational perspectives are applied on a European scale, and new skills and expertise are expected to be created in Europe.
