Visit from Portugal
In the framework of our DAAD funded project on borosilicate sol-gel derived biomaterials with University of Aveiro, Portugal, Prof. Maria Helena Fernandes and Prof. J. Carlos Almeida, Department Materials & Ceramic Engineering and CICECO – Aveiro Institute of Materials, Centre for Research in Ceramics and Composite Materials visited the Institute of Biomaterials (27-29 September 2017). They visited our building in Erlangen-West and discussed the progress of our collaborative research project. Before the end of the year researchers from our Institute will visit the partner institute in Portugal. The project is developing a new family of borosilicate bioactive glasses for a variety of biomedical applications.
