Visit from CIDETEC, Spain

Dr. S. Cabañas-Polo, Dr. J. Munoz und Prof. A. R. Boccaccini

Dr. Josemari Munoz, Head of the Ceramic Surfaces Unit at IK4-CIDETEC , San Sebastian, Spain, visited our Institute on 28th March. CIDETEC, a Technology Centre belonging to the IK4 Research Alliance, specialises in generating and transferring knowledge and technology in the areas of materials, surfaces and energy. CIDETEC is a member of The European Virtual Institute on Knowledge-based Multifunctional Materials AISBL (KMM-VIN). Prof. Boccaccini is one of the coordinators of the Working Group “Biomaterials” in KMM-VIN. We are collaborating with Dr Munoz in the field of electrophoretic deposition of novel bioactive coatings which follows from our previous joint projects on EPD of carbon nanotubes [1].
