Final Report - ROBIOS (Strengthening Romanian Research Training Capacities in Biosensing and Related Areas)

Project ID: 17464
Funded under: FP6-INCO

Abstract

ROBIOS was a European funded project within the Sixth Framework Programme whose main area of focus was the strengthening of the International centre for bio-dynamics (ICB) Research and technological development (RTD) capacities in bio-sensing and related areas with the ultimate aim to reinforce participation in Framework Programme (FP) calls and other national or international initiatives.

The scientific activities of ICB address a new interdisciplinary field concerning non-invasive, real-time methods and devices that enable the monitoring of bioprocesses and linear or non-linear data analysis for the characterisation of biosensors and biosystems.

Throughout the project special emphasis was laid on activities concerning the stabilisation and reinforcement of RTD potential through training, networking and exploitation, as well as dissemination activities. The organisation of a chain of international symposia, conferences and advanced courses in biodynamics, biosensing and related areas, hosted by ICB on its new premises, provided a perfect example of a successful blend of networking, dissemination, training and exploitation activities.

Substantial efforts had been put in establishing a functional network which resulted in the setup of a chain of mobility schemes between ICB and its partners within the network, as well as in the development of new proposals for the first FP Call for proposals. During the third year of the project execution participation was achieved in proposals for international cooperation calls. Seven proposals had reached the deadlines of the first calls of proposals while two others were envisaged to address the 2008 priorities following the design set within the meeting of the network for the development of selective bio-recognition and bio-affinity platforms.
