MICREAgents is a 3 yr collaborative project in Unconventional Computing (UComp) funded by Future Emerging Technologies in the EU FP7 program (start  1/9/2012).

The central idea of the project is to create a programmable microscale electronic chemistry,  that employs circuit elements (including super capacitors and energy harvesting) on autonomous self-assembling microscale particles (target ≤ 100 µm maximal dimension) in solution, which we call lablets, to direct reversible association (binding) between them and control access to and chemical reactions in the resulting enclosed reaction compartments.

BioMIP’s role includes the overall coordination of the project, the coordination of the fabrication of lablets and the dock, physical simulation of lablet functionality and integration of chemistry with electronics. 

See the project website for further details.
