Taking places on the Industrial Advisory Board each company will accompany the project consortium during the next 3 years and help to transform the project results into new products.
The ChipScope project aims to develop a chip-sized, affordable optical microscope to observe the interior of living cells in real time.
The new optical microscope with super-resolution capabilities will allow researchers in developing nations as well as scientists out in the field to take reliable images of viruses, DNA, living cells and more.
The ChipScope project runs from January 2017 to December 2020.
The project team includes SMEs, universities and research organisations under the leadership of the University of Barcelona.
Other partners are the Technical University of Braunschweig in Germany, the University of Rome Tor Vergata, the company Ymaging in Barcelona, the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology, the Medical University of Vienna, the FSRM Swiss Foundation for Research in Microtechnology and the Ludwig-Maximilians University (LMU) in Munich.
Four SMEs are also on the the board; endoASIC Technologies from Spain, Adimec Advanced Image Systems from The Netherlands, TissueGnostics GmbH from Austria, GATTAquant DNA nanotechnologies from Germany as well as two divisions of the National Metrology Institute PTB in Germany.
