The ECLT hosted 6 workshops in the ECCell project, with other meetings occurring at important experimental sites or in conjunction with international conferences. The European Center for Living Technology is the appropriate venue for the majority of meetings of ECCell which deals with a form of ICT living technology, and it has a proven track record of effective support for collaboration and dissemination in the IST-FET project PACE and other projects. With additional funding from a sister project MATCHIT and the coordination action COBRA, further workshops were co-organised. Each workshop was scheduled with 2-3 days of mixed presentations and discussions. In addition to this, participants were encouraged to spend a longer time at the centre to collaborate on the WPs in the project. A special workshop devoted to ICT applications of the ECCell technology, extending it to the domain of autonomous hybrid microchip systems, took place during the last year of the project. At this occasion, external experts were invited and this event had the role of communicating project results to the scientific community at the same time as ideas on applications were discussed. Most workshops were open, and scientists from member institutions of ECLT as well as other visitors could in this way interact with the ECCell project. The project held several workshops in conjunction with large international meetings such as ALife, ECAL and FET11.
