Baltic Biomaterials Centre of Excellence (BBCE), Phase I

Project Details


Evaluation of RTU, RSU and LIOS research capacity. Current research excellence, capacity, infrastructure and human resources of BBCE core institutions in Latvia will be evaluated. Short term leading staff collaborative visits will be held in Latvia, Switzerland and Germany. In addition, market research will be conducted
Development of BBCE roadmap. A strategy for sustainable growth of BBCE and research excellence achievement will be created, ensuring a full cycle of a biomaterials pathway from laboratory to clinics. Each of the core BBCE institutions in Latvia will develop a roadmap of their respective biomaterial research field: RTU – biomaterial development, synthesis and material characterisation; LIOS – biomaterial analysis in vitro and in vivo; RSU – transfer of biomaterials to patients, implementation in clinics and evaluation of biomaterials as drug delivery systems.
Business plan development. The business plan will be focused on the setting-up of the BBCE and will include a detailed analysis of partners involved, a work plan, a feasibility study of planned infrastructural investments in line with the long term strategic vision.
Dissemination and outreach. Awareness of BBCE among the academic community, state institutions, society and industry on EU level will be ensured.
