Kick-off meeting of ETN “NanoHeal” in Oslo
Prof. Boccaccini attended on 7-9 January in Oslo the kick-off meeting of the project “Nano-tailoring organo-mineral materials. Controlling strength and healing with organic molecules in mineral interfaces” (NanoHeal), which is a new European Training Network (ETN) established within Horizon 2020. NanoHeal is a joint research and training environment for 15 PhD students at 7 universities and research organizations from Norway, UK, France, Denmark, Israel and Germany, with secondments at partner organizations and at 5 partner industrial companies. The project to be carried out at our Institute will focus on biomimetic precipitation of minerals for self-healing of self-assembled aggregates.
