On 19-20 September 2018 Professor Aldo R. Boccaccini (Head, Institute of Biomaterials, and Chair, FAU Department of Materials Science and Engineering), hosted a delegation of engineering students from Argentina, with sponsorship of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).

Sixteen students of materials science and engineering and mechanical engineering of different Argentinean universities took part in this study trip, coordinated by Prof. Agustín Sisamon, from National University of Mar del Plata(UNMDP).

The students attended presentations of academic staff members of the different Chairs of the FAU Department of Materials Science and Engineering and visited laboratories of all Institutes. The program included also presentations of Ms L. Freitag of the Bavarian University Centre for Latinamerica (BayLat) and by Ms C. Barnickel from the FAU course Medical Engineering. From our Institute, Dr. Aldo Leal-Egana, Dr. Liliana Liverani, Prof. Josefina Ballarre (UNMDP) and Ms Lena Vogt (PhD student), in addition to Prof. Boccaccini, gave presentations about the latest research projects in the Institute.

Further stations of the study trip includes visits to the University of Saarland and to the Technical University of Dresden. Moreover the visiting students will attend the Congress Materials Science and Engineering (MSE 2018) in Darmstadt, on 26-28 September 2018, of which Argentina is partner country, this part of the MSE 2018 program includes the organisation of the symposium: “Argentine-German collaboration in Materials Science and Engineering“, coordinated by Prof. Boccaccini.
