Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini was member of the scientific committee of the EUROPEAN CONGRESS AND EXHIBITION ON ADVANCED MATERIALS AND PROCESSES (EUROMAT 2019), held in Stockholm, Sweden, on 1-5 September 2019. He was the Coordinator for Area F: Materials for Healthcare (with Prof. Håkan Engqvist, Uppsala University, Sweden). Prof. Boccaccini also co-organised the symposium “Bioactive Ceramics, Bioactive Glasses and Composites for Tissue Engineering and other Advanced Healthcare Applications” together with Prof. Cecilia Persson (Uppsala University, Sweden) and Prof. Antonio Salinas (UCM, Spain) (pictured with Prof. Boccaccini).
In this section, Boccaccini presented the talk “Bioactive glass-based scaffolds with dual release of phytotherapeutics and biologically active ions for tissue engineering”.
Our Institute was also represented by Dr. Kai Zheng (pictured with Prof. Boccaccini), who presented the talk “Multifunctional surface modified mesoporous bioactive glass nanoparticles for biomedical applications” and a poster.
Prof. Boccaccini attended also the meeting of the Executive Committee of the Federation of European Materials Societies (FEMS) of which he is a member represeting the German Materials Societies (DGM).
Prof. Boccaccini with colleagues: Prof. Paula Vilarinho (Portugal, EC FEMS), Prof. Nikolaos Michailidis (Greece, EUROMAT Chair of Scientific Committee), Prof. Ana Zervaki (Greece, EC FEMS), Prof. Janis Locs (Latvia), Prof. Pamela Habibovic (The Netherlands, Keynote speaker), Prof. Havard Haugen (Norway, Symposium organiser), Prof. Leena Hupa (Finland, Keynote speaker).
