Next year, the 5th edition of the Annual EUROoCS Conference, EUROoCS 2024, will again be organized somewhere in Europe. With the increasing number of EUROoCS members and activities in the Organ-on-Chip field, we expect that EUROoCS 2024 will be at least as successful as the meeting in the beautiful Grenoble in France last year.

This committee should include two EUROoCS Board members, as well as two members of the EUROoCS Regulatory Advisory Board and the Industrial Advisory Board, respectively

The meeting should be held just before the summer holidays with a duration of 2.5 days (extended from 2 days in previous editions)
• Location & Venue
