Visit from AGH University of Science and Technology, Krakow, Poland
On 15-16 May 2019 we received the visit of researchers from AGH University of Science and Technology, Faculty of Materials Science and Ceramics, namely Prof. Maciej Sitarz, Ms Magdalena Gaweda (PhD student) and Dr Jakub Marchewka (post-doctoral researcher). After research presentations of the visitors, we discussed the continuation of our successful collaboration with the research group of Prof. Sitarz (e.g. [1, 2]), which will involve advanced characterisation techniques for inorganic and composite biomaterials. The visitors from Krakow visited our laboratories and discussed with different members of our Institute (Ms Katharina Schuladen, Ms Susanne Heid, Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini, among other).  A.
