The COST P21 action on "The Physics of droplets" is a 4 year EU program that started at the beginning of October 2006.
The main objective of this Physics Action is to initiate a concerted European effort to develop the physics of droplets: Creation, manipulation, stockage, coating tiny quantity of liquid. It is also aimed at developing new devices to control the size and the mixing of droplets. This domain interests a large variety of domains: food science, pharmacology, lab-on-a-chip technology, medecine, painting, soldering...
