Baltic Biomaterials Centre of Excellence (BBCE)

Establishment of the Baltic Biomaterials Centre of Excellence (BBCE) under Horizon 2020 Teaming framework will provide an opportunity to combine expertise and infrastructure, to create critical mass and excel in the respective field and create spill-over effects between different fields. Within the formation of critical mass in research and development, also the cooperation between industry and research organisations will be encouraged, leading to technology transfer and delivery of new products to the market. Hence BBCE project´s main objective is to establish a joint Baltic Biomaterials Centre of Excellence for advanced biomaterial development based on the long-term strategic cooperation between

  • AO Research Institute Davos, Switzerland (ARI) and
  • Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen- Nuremberg, Germany (FAU)

 and three institutions from Latvia -

  • The Rudolfs Cimdins Riga Biomaterials Innovations and Development Centre of Riga Technical University (RTU RBIDC),
  • Latvian Institute of Organic Synthesis (LIOS) and
  • Riga Stradins University, (RSU).

BBCE will ensure sustainable quality of the research and technology transfer potential in the field of biomaterials for medical applications, mainly focusing on areas possessing the best available scientific and research capacities – in particular on research of biomaterials, advanced materials, nanotechnology, biomedicine and biopharmacy.
