Final Report - INCOMAT (Creating international cooperation teams of excellence in the field of emerging biomaterial surface research)

Project ID: 32918
Funded under: FP6-NMP

Abstract

The ageing of Europe's population will be a crucial challenge for the 21st century. Furthermore there are specific problems concerning RTD resources and capabilities existing in the third countries (western Balkan, newly independent states) having been isolated and excluded from the cooperation with EU, their networking works rather on regional level.

INCOMAT contributes to eliminate these deficiencies and created cooperation teams of excellence with experts from the European Union, third countries and United States. The 15 project partners from 10 countries brought in their experiences and share their knowledge and competencies from different biomaterial related surface technology fields.

The final report gives a brief outline of the work packages and notes that there is a huge potential for the future to establish more medical companies in above regions. And it will be sure, that public means for research decrease in the next years. This will increase the pressure on institutes to collaborate more with the local industry.
