The MAMI Innovative Training Network (ITN) combines expertise in the field of magnetism with knowledge of bio-inspired local flow control, in order to create novel concepts and technological solutions that could revolutionize the field of microfluidics. The MAMI network consists of six research teams from France, Germany, Ireland, Latvia, Slovenia, and Spain and engages world-recognized leaders in the fields of magnetism and fluidics in a research and training program with companies in France and Slovenia, and a group of four other non-academic partner organizations working in the fields of magnetism and microfluidics, and IP management. The planned research ranges from understanding the fundamentals of cerebral fluid flow, to novel contactless magnetic liquid confinement, and the development of novel devices of industrial relevance. A total of 15 PhD students will be available by ~september 2018 funded through the Marie Skłodowska-Curie action of the European Union.
