The route of novel biomaterials from synthesis to utilization in medical devices and products is complex requiring comprehensive physico-chemical, biological and functional characterization of biomaterials followed by preclinical and clinical studies adhering to strict procedures and regulations. Faculty of Technology and Metallurgy (FTM) in Belgrade is one of the leading institutions in Serbia in the field of materials engineering including certain areas in biomaterials engineering. Various biomaterials with bioactive agents were synthesized by variety of methods and characterized in detail regarding composition, morphology, structure, and mechanical and thermal properties. However, the next phases towards translation to medical devices and products are lacking primarily due to the lack of knowledge in these fields. The aim of the project “Twinning to excel materials engineering for medical devices – ExcellMater” funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme is to tackle this weakness by twinning the needed expertise to FTM from the international project partners: University of Eastern Piedmont, Italy, AO Research Institute Davos, Switzerland, and Aalto University, Finland.
