SUPERMAT virtual center: a platform to develop extreme materials for tissue engineering
Materials are technological bottleneck in many key areas such as ENERGY and LIFE-SCIENCE. The EC is strongly supporting R&D and transfer to the market of advanced materials from extreme applications. WIthin this context a Virtual Center on Extreme Materials called SUPERMAT was established in Romania , coordinated by IMNR and participated by large Institutions such as ENEA(Italy), CEA (France) , KTH(Sweden), and CNRS (France) to boost development of materials in many applications, including life science and technologies, such as lab-on-chip kit and tissue engineering. The platforms offers services and promote participation EU projects (mainly IA actions with high TRL) , with an emphais on eye regenerative medicine.
