Special Sessions

Session I: Qualification and standardization

This session on July 4th, organized by the EUROoCS Regulatory Advisory Board (RAB), will inform you about the activities on Organ-on-Chip standardization in Europe, will answer your questions about qualification, and will update you about important regulatory steps in the field of Organ-on-Chip.

Session II: Company challenges

This session on July 4th, initiated by the EUROoCS Industrial Advisory Board (IAB), enables companies to discuss a specific challenge of their choice with experts from the EUROoCS community. This is a great chance for the companies to inform developers and/or other stakeholders about existing gaps and challenges relevant to the company as well as to gather feedback on (potential) solutions and/or pave the way for future collaborations.

To maximize the chance for interactions and mutual benefits, the EUROoCS organizing team will provide a room where each company has its own reserved space, will announce the challenges in the conference program as well as inform the participants about the session on site. Participation is for free.


Companies that are interested in the ‘Company challenge’ session can send a clear depiction of their challenge (max 100 words) to at the latest on May 15 2022. Please mention ’Company Challenge’ in the heading.

Special Poster Corner

Following the online presentations of the Nation-wide Organ-on-Chip Communities at the EUROoCS 2022 conference, the EUROoCS 2022 Scientific Program Committee would like to highlight the progress of these national initiatives again by setting up a special corner during the Poster session. Of course, there is also room for such initiatives from other countries.


Contact persons from countries who would like to expose their nation-wide community can express their interest by sending an email to at the latest on May 15 2022. Please mention ’Nation-wide Community’ in the heading.
