All MAMI members enjoyed an outreach activity organised by the Microfluidic Cluster UPV/EHU after the Progress meeting of the project that took place in Vitoria-Gasteiz the 31st of January 2020. MAMI members visited the winary, Marques de Riscal, and a visit to the incredible medieval city of Laguardia in Alava.Then, the Early Career Researchers of the European Project participated in a outreach activity where they needed to explain to the general public and in a colloquial way: why tax payers should fund their respective projects.
The Microfluidics Symposium organised by the Microfluidic Cluster UPV/EHU in Vitoria-Gasteiz the 30th of January 2020 appeared on the news of the "El Diario de Noticias de Álava" the 30th of January 2020."Un laboratorio en un solo chip" by Sara Cabrera and Jorge Muñoz presents the Symposium and our Cluster to the general public.
On the 30th of January 2020, The Microfluidics Cluster UPV/EHU organised the first Microfluidics Symposium at the Faculty of Pharmacy in Vitoria-Gasteiz. The Symposium brought seven international speakers from different disciplines: Futuristic Microfluidics Incorporating Bioinspired Functionalities.Dermot Diamond (Dublin City University, IRL).

From 27.01 to 29.01 the Students from European Project MAMI have been working on different projects related to microfluidics: paper microfluidics, 3D printed microfluidics, cells on a chip and polymer fabrication of microfluidic devices. On Monday 27th of January MAMI students visited Microliquid facilities in Arrasate-Mondragón. They learnt about mass scale fabrication of microfluidics devices, visited their facilities and enjoyed a great microfluidics industrial experience!
