Overview

The field of medical biomaterials has recently developed a major growth potential as the demand for cardiovascular, orthopaedic as well as dental implant devices is tremendously increasing worldwide. The ageing of Europe´s population will be a crucial challenge for the 21st century.

 

Based on recent impulses from key technologies such as Regenerative Medicine, Tissue Engineering and Nanotechnology the INCOMAT project (15 partner from D-HR-CS-BY-GE-UA-RU-US-UK) is particularly addressing the multidisciplinary approach in biomaterial research for hard tissue implants and the recognised necessity of international cooperation and networking.

 

However, there are specific problems concerning RTD resources and capabilities existing especially in the Third countries (Western Balkan [WBC], Newly Independent States [NIS]) having been isolated and excluded from the cooperation with EU, their networking works rather on regional level. INCOMAT contributes to eliminate these deficiencies and will create cooperation Teams of Excellence with experts from EU, Third countries and US.
