The MINASENS workshop aims to bring together engineers and scientists from all over Europe to discuss recent progress and future trends in the fabrication and applications of miniaturized biochemical sensing devices and systems. Leading European scientists are invited to participate in order to evaluate our achievements and bring-in new ideas for further improvements and additional collaborations for the creation of healthy strategic research partnerships. Young scientists from our country are invited to attend in order to get acquainted with new methodologies and the obtained scientific results.

The workshop will take place at NCSR “Demokritos” campus in Athens, Greece, the period March 7th-8th, 2013.



IMEL was established in 1988 to promote research related with Microelectronics in Greece, fostering at the same time the involvement and contribution of the country to European research in the field. Since then, the Institute has been able to acquire research equipment, successfully participate in numerous European research projects and produce high quality research. The Institute, recognized as a Centre of Excellence in Nanoelectronics and MEMS in Greece and more recently in Europe, Micro and Nano Systems Centre of Excellence (MiNaSys-CoE), targets strengthening its position through collaborations with other major research institutes in Europe in the field of nanofabrication, nanodevices, and sensors/MEMS/NEMS.
