On 13th October 2020 Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini and Qaisar Nawaz (PhD student) attended the progress meeting of the _DFG_ (LINK: _https://www.dfg.de/_ ) funded project on advanced microstructural characterisation of bioactive glasses and glass-ceramics, which was held remotely. In this project, we collaborate with researchers from Fraunhofer Institute for Microstructure of Materials and Systems (IMWS), group Nanomaterials and Nanoanalytics (GNN),  Halle, and from the group of Prof. Delia Brauer,  at Otto Schott Institute of Materials Research, University of of Jena, in a project focusing on advanced in-situ characterization of bioactive glasses (BGs) and glass-ceramics. Different compositions of BGs are investigated, which are developed both by melting and by sol-gel methods. The latest article from this project has been published (Open Access) recently in the J. European Ceramic Society [1].
