The Transfrontier Meeting on Sensors and Biosensors reaches its 24th edition (TMSB-2019). This year, it is organized by the Team of Biosensors, Analysis, Environment (BAE) of Université de Perpignan Via Domitia in association with the Laboratory of Microbial Biodiversity and Biotechnology (LBBM USR-3579).
The TMSB started in 1996 at the initiative of Profs. Salvador Alegret (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona), Jean-Louis Marty (Université de Perpignan) and Maurice Comtat (Université Paul Sabatier) to bring together researchers from the Euroregion between France and Spain (Catalonia, Languedoc-Roussillon, Midi-Pyreénées) and nearby areas, with the aim of showing its latest achievements in the field of sensors and biosensors and creating new contacts and collaboration networks between the different groups. Since then it has become an annual meeting, which is held alternately in French territory and in Catalonia, although it has also visited Peñíscola (Castellón de la Plana) in 1998 and Andorra la Vella (Andorra) in 2008.
