Advanced Research Training for the Biotribology of Natural and Artificial Joints in the 21st Century

Project description

Research training program for natural and artificial joints specialists

The EU-funded BioTrib program is dedicated to training early-stage researchers with the technical and innovation skills to develop advances in the performance of natural and artificial joints. The new program's focus is on biotribology, which includes friction, lubrication and wear in these interventions. The researchers will gain the necessary interdisciplinary skills demanded by industry to deliver timely and cost-effective solutions to some of the most intractable European healthcare problems in arthritis. The training goals will be achieved by a combination of hands-on research in leading research centers together with industrial partners and workshops covering technical and transferable skills. The career opportunities for trainees will include regulatory, management and policy affairs, commercial R&D and academia.
