At the 28th Annual Conference of the European Society for Biomaterials (ESB) in Athens, Jasper presented his work on "Gelatin Functionalization Strategies Enhance Biofabrication Versatility on the Micro and Macro-Scale." The Award Committee rewarded the scientific excellence of Jasper Van Hoorick with the Biointerphases poster award.
Prof. Sandra Van Vlierberghe, professor at both VUB B-PHOT and PBM Gent, has contributed to the knowledge in the field of biomaterials by elaborating innovative hydrogel crosslinking strategies that combine excellent biocompatibility with processing versatility. In addition to advancing biopolymers in the biomaterials field, she also introduced the solid state crosslinking capability of synthetic hydrogels, a finding which was patented jointly with industry.
Thanks to recent progress, Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH) is becoming the norm in many countries, and the significant increase of bandwidth allows the emergence of new services and technologies. Tactile internet, telemedicine and real-time 3-D content generation are now realistic and probably represent the onset of the next wave of innovation.
After the submission of the evaluation file followed by the visit of the experts in 2016, the conclusions of the CTI have been confirmed to us today. This international quality label provides a set of standards that identifies high-quality engineering degree programmes in Europe and abroad, and facilitates academic and professional mobility.
