A look back at the 1st DIM ELICIT DAY


Organized on the Institut Pasteur campus on March 18, the 1st DIM ELICIT DAY brought together around 130 participants around the theme of innovative technologies for life sciences.

Introduced by Stewart Cole, the President of the Institut Pasteur, this day allowed quality exchanges between scientists from different disciplines and from various research organizations in the Ile-de-France region.

The program offered four thematic sessions: “Tech for in vivo Biology and Advanced Microscopy”, “High-Tech Low Cost”, “Single Cell – Single Molecule” and “Organ-on-chip and Cell Technologies”, with a high-level speaker, Professor Jonathan Cooper from the University of Glasgow, on low-cost DNA detection techniques for the diagnosis of infectious diseases.

During a “flash presentations” session and two poster sessions, all the projects funded by the DIM ELICIT were presented to the scientific community. Several startups from the Ile-de-France region (Abbelight, Stilla Technologies, Aenitis & the Agoranov incubator) also spoke during the day to share their experience with an audience mainly from the academic world.

Gabrielle Costa, head of the research and scientific culture department of the Ile-de-France region, concluded the day by congratulating the DIM ELICIT for its action which contributes to reinforce the scientific influence of the Ile-de-France region and to promote technology transfer.

She also reminded the launch of the Paris Region PhD2 program, which aims to support scientific employment in the Ile-de-France region and develop the digital skills of companies, within the themes of the Domains of Main Interest.
