Final Report - NEWBONE (Development of load-bearing fibre reinforced composite based non-metallic biomimetic bone implant)

Project ID: 26279
Funded under: FP6-NMP


This is the final report for the NEWBONE project which aimed to develop Fibre and Nanohybrid reinforced composite (FRC and NHRC) material for surgical bone repair and replacement where load-bearing and ligament fixation capabilities are essential. The project notes that the results of the project NEWBONE are expected cover the gaps that exist in Europe in terms of increased health care costs and decreased quality of life of the patients involved in bone replacement operations as well as in terms of Europe dragging behind United States in the commercialisation of biomaterials and implant technologies.
