The programme vision of the BioImplant ITN is to develop improved bioabsorbable materials for medical implant applications and deliver technical, interdisciplinary, and transferrable skills training to the Early-Stage Researchers throughout all stages of the development process.

This next-generation of medical implants will be realised through technological innovation throughout the development process, including novel material development, advanced manufacturing technologies, robust characterisation and predictive capabilities and innovative application design. All ESRs on the BioImplant ITN will have active involvement in all stages of the development process and the programme will culminate in the development of several functionally superior vascular and orthopaedic bioabsorbable medical implants.
