Main topics of the conference

The motto for the conference will be “Future with Biomaterials”, as a challenge to our community to explore biomaterials in conjunction with advanced technologies, such as Nanotechnology, Biofabrication, Microfluidics and Bioimaging to develop the clinical combination products and functionalities of the future.

Other topics of the conference include:

  • Additive manufacturing (including Biofabrication and 4D (bio)printing)
  • Biomaterials characterization
  • Biomaterials development (including smart biomaterials)
  • Biomaterials for specific medical applications
  • Biomaterials for tissue engineering
  • Cell-biomaterial interactions (including mechanosensing)
