February 02, 2023 EUROoCS
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.

Please send your application to the EUROoCS Board (firstname.lastname@example.org) with reference to ‘EUROoCS 2024’. Deadline: April 17th 2023
For the application you have to address the following topics:
Why this country, location and hosting organization?
• Conference chair/hosting organization

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 program should be attractive for the Organ-on-Chip community, in particular for the young researchers (PhD students) with plenty of room for interaction and the possibility to present their results
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
The intended venue should be suitable to host scientific sessions, special sessions, posters, exhibition, climate control

Please include the support letters of potential sponsors in the Annex. Sponsors can include, among others, companies (pharma, biotech, equipment, CRO), local organizations, non-profit
The budget should be at least cost neutral. Financial reporting should be performed in a manner that the EUROoCS Board can track and evaluate.
Potential annexes include support letters of sponsors, and CV of proposed Conference chair(s)
Note: It is highly recommended to add visuals (photos or movie) to illustrate the environment, venue with floorplan, organizing committee etc. in order to get a good impression of the team and conference site.
The applications will be evaluated by the EUROoCS Board and a decision can be expected in late May/early June 2023. The organizer of the EUROoCS 2024 conference will be announced via the EUROoCS communication channels and at the MPS World Summit in Berlin from 26-30 June 2023.
