This year’s theme, Accreditation: Sustainability in Economic Growth and the Environment, focuses on how accreditation supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.


“If you think of big laboratories, we’re aiming to diminish their size to fit in the palm of your hand and be taken everywhere in the world. Microfluidics devices are the size of a pinkie nail.

We need standardization to achieve the same level of maturity and industrialization as electronic devices. EMPIR – 20NRM02 MFMET project aims to contribute to the development of globally accepted metrology standards in microfluidic devices.”

Vania Silverio, Ph.D. | R&D Microfluidics Scientists | INESC MN Microsistemas e Nanotecnologias
