PRN Conference 2024

The SIMPPER_MedDev 1-Day Conference, scheduled for May 15th, 2024, at DTU, Lyngby, Denmark. This event is a satellite event of PRN 24, taking place from May 13th-14th 2024. All our Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) will be in attendance, presenting their latest and groundbreaking work within the project framework. The subjects cover a spectrum, including functional plastic microfluidic chips, low-friction polymer surfaces, hydrogel 3D printing, biopolymer injection molding, and laser processing. However, all are centered around medical devices and applications. It promises to be a day filled with insightful discussions, knowledge exchange, and networking opportunities.
