On 19th February 2020 we received the visit of Dr. Romain Lucas, from the Institute of Research for Ceramics (IRCER) at University of Limoges, France. There are several initiatives for collaboration between IRCER and the FAU Department of Materials Science and Engineering, including the Institute of Biomaterials, discussed during the visit of Dr.  Lucas. These include research projects in the field of bioceramics that started previously [1]. Moreover our Institute is currently a member of the EU project “Additive Manufacturing Initiative for Transnational Innovation in Europe”, (EU H2020 Research & Innovation Programme, Marie Skłodowska Curie Grant Agreement 734342) coordinated by Dr. Fabrice Rossignol from IRCER.
