Junior Euromat Conference in Budapest
The Junior EUROMAT 2018 Conference took place in Budapest, Hungary on 8-12 July, 2018.
Over 250 young materials researchers from 32 countries attended the conference, which is one of the main events of the Federation of European Materials Societies (FEMS). Prof. Boccaccini was one of the plenary speakers at the conference. He presented the lecture: “Bioactive materials and biofabrication for tissue engineering: progress and challenges”. Our Institute was also represented by Ms Katharina Schuhladen (PhD student, pictured with Prof. Boccaccini) who presented the oral contribution: “Comparison of the dissolution behavior of silicate, borosilicate and borate bioactive glasses under static and dynamic condition”.
Prof. Boccaccini attended also the meeting of the Executive Committee (EC) of FEMS, of which he is a member since 2017. He attended the FEMS General Assembly in which he was elected to serve for another two years in FEMS EC, representing the German Materials Society (DGM).
