Farewell to our visiting Master students from Argentina

Argentinische Studenten werden von Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini verabschiedet

This week, Agustina Massone, Joan Gagliardo and Luciano Fissore (pictured with Prof. Boccaccini), visiting Master students from National University of Mar del Plata (UNMDP) (Argentina), completed their stay at the Institute of Biomaterials and will continue with their industrial placement in Germany, all activities carried out in the framework of the I.DEAR students exchange program in materials science and engineering. Agustina, Joan and Luciano worked on research projects in the field of electrospun biopolymer fibres, bioactive coatings and tissue engineering scaffolds in collaboration with colleagues at “Instituto de Investigaciones en Ciencia y Tecnología de Materiales” (INTEMA), UNMDP. I.DEAR is an international exchange program in materials science and engineering in which the University of Saarland, National University of Mar del Plata and our University (FAU) are participating. The program is supported by the German-Argentinean University Centre (DAHZ). I.DEAR enables also FAU Master students of materials science and engineering to spend one year in Argentina at UNMDP.
