TriAnkle Open Exploitation and Innovation Workshop
Cambridge – UK
The TriAnkle held their Open Exploitation and Innovation Workshop, on the 23rd January as a hybrid meeting, in Cambridge at the Clayton Hotel. This event was aimed to bring together healthcare professionals, both from private and public organisations, as well as professionals from regulatory policy making and patenting organisations, who are leading development of novel technologies and concepts in regenerative medicine and 3D bio-printing.
Around 60 people registered to attend this workshop (in person and online). External registered delegates came from leading institutions and organisations such as: Geistlich, University of Cambridge, University College London, Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Trust; Nelt Pharmaceuticals, Swansea University, Center for Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering (CBIT), Universitat Politecnica de Valencia, UIC Catalonia, Vonlathen Group, University of Glasgow, ANSYS Uncommon Limited, Bioprosthetics Inc, BioSense Institute, Newcastle University, NarrowWare, University of Sheffield, Alfaisal University Codon Communications, Aleph Farms, AGEless Biotechnologies, NavBiotec, Mashhad University of Medical Sciences, SRM Institute of Science and Technology, Massachusetts General Hospital -MGH, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Nanocounsult, among others. Most participating organisations belong to industry (as shown in the graphic below). From those registered, 52 people participated in the workshop, 33 attended in person.
The TriAnkle https://triankle.eu/) is an innovative medical application that aims to improve the junctions and cartilages (and therefore, the overall movement) of the ankle by introducing a tailored, 3D bio-printed collagen-and-gelatin based structure in the affected area. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020. TriAnkle is a team of 12 leading international organisations covering the complete spectrum from advanced research to the market. Viscofan BioEngineering and Cellink are the industry partners, working with various associates, such as FC Barcelona Innovation Hub, Osteoarthritis Foundation International (OAFI), Fraunhofer IGB, University of Stuttgart, Universidad del País Vasco (UPV), Eindhoven University of Technology, Leitat Technological Center, Cambridge Nanomaterials Technology (CNT), Gradocell and Fundacio Clinic per a la Recerca Biomedica.

N-TRACK 2nd Open Day Workshop
14 March 2022
The 2nd Open Day of nTRACK project aimed to communicate the project progress, results and outcomes. This workshop titled ‘Stem Cell NanoImaging – Advances and Applications’ was organized by Leitat. Other projects funded under the same call as nTRACK were invited, they were: iNanobit, StarStem – who also presented their results at the workshop.
Due to the COVID-pandemic the event was organised online on March 14th, 2022. Cambridge Nanomaterials Technology (CNT) created a virtual exhibition website (www.regmedexpo.net) with individual exhibition booths for each partner to compensate for lack of in-person communication due to Covid pandemic and to enhance direct engagement between project partners and stakeholders, including possible end-users, clients, investors and collaborators outside of the consortium during and after the end of the project.
The workshop went through over 4 key blocks: (a) Progress presentation of all projects funded under the same topic: iNanobit, StarStem and nTRACK; (b) Current progress of nanomedicine and regenerative medicine; (c) Lessons learnt on the regulatory framework; and (d) preclinical models and imaging.
A total of 72 attendees were present during the event.
