Prof. Boccaccini: Keynote speaker at Int. Workshop on Advanced Ceramics (IWAC-07) in Limoges, France
The 7th International Workshop on Advanced Ceramics (IWAC-07) was held in Limoges, France on 26-28 September 2016, organized by “Laboratory of Science of Ceramic Processing and Surface Treatments” (SPCTS) and held under the auspices of the French Group of Ceramics. Professor Boccaccini presented the keynote lecture: “Bioactive Glasses in Soft Tissue Repair: Advances and Challenges”. This series of international workshops was established in 2004 to promote collaboration between laboratories in Europe and Asia, in particular four universities are involved: Nagoya Institute of Technology, Japan, Laboratory of Science of Ceramic Processing and Surface Treatments, Limoges, France, Imperial College London, UK and University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany. Our Institute was also represented by Ms Barbara Myska (PhD student in EU project NanoHeal), Ms Francesca Ciraldo (PhD student in EU project CoACH) and Ms Seray Kaya (PhD student in EU project HyMedPoly), who presented posters with the latest results of their research projects [1-3]. The program of the meeting is available. In the photos organisers and participants at IWAC-07, including: Dr. F. Rossignol (Limoges), Prof. P. Thomas (Limoges), Prof. K. Fukuda (Nagoya), Dr. T.
