The program is divided into morning and afternoon sessions. The morning sessions are dedicated to lectures on clinical needs, currently applied strategies to treat large bone defects as well as recent developments to broaden the treatment options with sophisticated biomaterials approaches.
Additionally, the lecture program focuses on challenges to be overcome in clinical application, such as technical limitations, biomaterial associated infections as well as legal aspects and other obstacles on the way from innovation to the clinic.
The afternoon sessions comprise a variety of lab courses on preparation and physico-chemical characterization of biomaterials. Finally, there are afternoon and evening activities to promote the networking activity among the young participating biomaterials scientists.
