ICN2 Hosted the 2nd Semester Meeting of EU-Funded Project Aiming to Detect Alzheimer’s Disease at Early Stages

The meeting was organised by members of the Nanobioelectronics and Biosensors Group and took place on April 17th and 18th, 2024, at ICN2. Representatives from 11 institutions across eight European countries attended.

The 2D-BioPAD project officially launched in October 2023 with a kick-off meeting in Greece, during which the 11 partners defined their responsibilities to ensure the achievement of the project’s objectives. Now, six months later, they gather once more to review progress, assess the current status, strategise, and join their efforts to address potential challenges for the upcoming semester.

To align efforts, the agenda for this second in-person meeting included presentations, workshops, co-creative exercises, updates, and the development of an action plan for the 2nd semester (including activities, key deadlines, responsible partners, etc.). Recent advances in lateral flow assay technology, device development, graphene-based platform design, and ethics were among the featured topics discussed. The consortium intends to maintain its rigorous research and development efforts, scheduling additional meetings to ensure the project remains aligned with its objectives. [Read more]
