Kick -Off meeting of new EU project “MOZART” in Turin, Italy

Teilnehmer am Eröffnungstreffen

The kick-off meeting of the new EU (Horizon 2020) project: “Mesoporous matrices for localized pH-triggered release of therapeutic ions and drugs” (MOZART) was held in Turin, Italy, on 19-20 November 2015. The project has received total funding of 4.65 million €. The MOZART project involves 8 different countries and 11 partners, 5 high tech SMEs and 6 top European Universities. The FAU Institute of Biomaterials under direction of Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini is one of the academic partners involved in MOZART. The researchers in Erlangen will lead the effort in fabricating nanoscale mesoporous silicate matrices tailored for the controlled release of biologically active ions and bioactive molecules.
