Already one day prior to the start of the EUROoCS Conference 2022, the EUROoC ITN consortium met on 3 July 2022 in Grenoble, France for their bi-annual consortium meeting. The day was kicked off by a meeting of the EUROoC PIs who recapitulated the project, its challenges but also its great successes. Especially considering the massive restrictions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, all beneficiaries found it particularly impressive how well the ESRs nevertheless worked together, maintained the exchange and built up their own professional network, from which they will undoubtedly benefit massively in their further professional careers. After this discussion forum, the ESRs joint the meeting and presented the progress they made during the last three years on their individual projects and explained how collaborations with each other enabled better development of their systems.
Finally, after a long day of great Organ-on-Chip science, the EUROoC consortium got to enjoy some delicious French cuisine during the conference dinner. It has been great to finally be able to meet everyone in person and to conclude the meeting in good company.
