11-15 December 2020 WBC Virtual

The Congress promises a diverse and interesting programme, an international forum for the presentation and discussion of cutting-edge research related to the interactions of biological systems with engineered, synthetic and natural materials. It is an occasion to meet, listen, discuss, share knowledge and bring together inspired biomaterials people.

During the Congress, a specific workshop focused on GIOTTO Project will be organized and some of the project partners will be there to give a speech about their activities inside the project.
