On 14th July 2017 we received the visit of Prof. Dr. Thomas Fiedler, Associate Professor at the Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment, The University of Newcastle (UON), Australia. We have been collaborating with Prof. Fiedler for a number of years in the field of characterisation of bioactive glass scaffolds for bone regeneration. Our latest joint paper was published in the J. Mater. Sci. [1]. We are currently expanding our collaboration to consider scaffolds fabricated by using maritime sponges as template to create optimal porosity [2].
