iCARe project proposal team wins ‘Young Scientist Consortium building Challenge’ prize at Forum for Analytical Science and Technology (FAST)

iCARe team
The iCARe team was awarded the ‘Young Scientist Consortium Building’ prize during the Forum for Analytical Science and Technology (FAST) held in Veldhoven on May 16-17, 2017. The participants of the challenge for MSc+ talent program students, PhD students and postdocs were asked to form groups and create original public-private research plans during a 2-hour brainstorm session. In total five teams participated in the challenge. Fleur van Beek of the TA-COAST project MAnIAC (UvA) was chosen to be the Primary Investigator of her group, consisting of Paula Borgonje (MSc+, University of Groningen), André van den Doel (OFF/ON, Radboud University), Alina Astefanei (University of Amsterdam), Milou Santbergen (GUTTEST, Wageningen University), Gerjen Tinnevelt (IMPACT, Radboud University), and Nienke van Dongen (MSc+, Wageningen University). Together they managed to convince both the industrial partners and the jury to invest in their individualized Cellular Activity Reactor project (iCARe). A prize of 5600 euros was awarded to the team so that they can employ a student to carry out a feasibility study.
