Baltic sea network for biomaterial composites

The department joins the Baltic sea network for biomaterial composites (BASENETBICO ).


This project shall lead to sustainable cooperation between partners with scientific and industrial competence in the field of biomaterials with a special focus on composites. This includes not only the established composite materials for dental restorative applications, but also biomaterial composites applied in hard tissue, such as cements or filler materials.

The project coves all well-known challenges in biomaterials research and development with emphasis on new emerging topics such as antimicrobial materials or metrological characterization. Based on bilateral contacts, conferences and workshops this network is established with main competences for research and development needed for biomaterials research. The first workshop will be in Jena, Germany, October 2014.
