BioTiNet is a
Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) for early-stage researchers (ESR) and experienced researchers (ER) funded by the European Commission under the
FP7 - `People` Programme.
The 4-year project started on January 1. 2011 and finished on December 31. 2014 (G.A. no. 264635).
The project provides research and training
opportunities for 18 young researchers/fellows in the field of biomedical materials,
with special emphasis on the development of advanced low-rigidity Titanium-based structures for orthopaedic use.
This involves both multi-disciplinary scientific training, secondments in both academia and industry, and courses
in complementary ("soft") skills.
BioTiNet conducts its own research, which addresses highly significant, up-to-date research questions in the area of Materials Science and Engineering, Physics and Chemistry of Nanostructures, Laser-Assisted Rapid Manufacturing, Skeletal Tissue Engineering, Electrochemistry, Surface Science and Microbiology.
This Network comprises 12 Full Partners and 5 Associated Partners from 11 European countries (Germany, France, Belgium, Austria, UK, Poland, Greece, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland and Sweden).
