On 19th December 2016 we received the visit of Prof. Enrica Verne a senior member of the Department of Applied Science and Technology at Polytechnic of Turin, Italy, led by Prof. Monica Ferraris. We have been collaborating with the research group of Prof. Verne for more than 12 years. Previously we have investigated the surface functionalization of bioactive glasses [1], more recently we have collaborated in the field of Zn and Sr doped bioactive glass based coatings for metallic materials [2].
