4th BIOMAT congress 2021 & 1st BIOMAT Young Scientists's Day

The 4th BIOMAT Congress (BIOMAT 2021) and the 1st BIOMAT Young Scientists's Day is taking place in Bourg-Saint-Maurice (Savoie), in the heart of the French Alps, October 18th-22nd, 2021. The logistical and scientific organization of this meeting has been ensured by biomaterials researchers of the region Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and members of the national association BIOMAT.

Published on 21 October 2021
More than 120 biomaterials scientists, clinicians and industrials from several countries (UK, Germany, Canada, The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and France) will join the meeting. The aim of the Congress is to bring together and provide meeting and exchange opportunities to students, clinicians, researchers and companies working in the field of biomaterials development and evaluation. It focuses principally on
i) The European and international cooperation’s with 12 invited speakers from Europe and France, a special emphasis on European projects experience, funding and experiences, and a Special seminar on an Intereg project;
ii) The training of students and young researchers (more than 80) with, for the first time, a dedicated BIOMAT Young Scientists’ Day that provides educational and exchange opportunities around experts in medical devices, career choices, funding, and round tables;
iii) The interaction with industrials of the field (4 invited industrials). This and more, embedded in a rich scientific program.

The conference is composed of plenary conferences given by distinguished researchers from Europe to open 7 sessions scheduled during 4 days. 35 oral presentations (29 from young researchers) and more than 30 posters have been selected by the scientific committee. The posters will be displayed over the entire course of the congress, highlighted by 15 flash presentation in two dedicated sessions. Awards will be attributed by BIOMAT, the GDR Réparer l’Humain and Rheolution for the best student poster and best student oral presentations. We encourage you to interact, discover and exchange during the Congress, the breaks and the Thursday’s free times (hiking in the mountains, guided visits of historic and industrial sites, sports or farniente). Just enjoy to learn, meet, share and discuss around science and the beautiful area of Bourg-Saint-Maurice!”
