On our TNOTIME platform you can find blogs, interviews and background stories. Discover the field of TNO captured in photographs, animations, video and text. Share interesting articles and powerful infographics, or download whitepapers.
Maastricht University (UM) and Brightlands Materials Center (BMC) decided to join forces to create one of the largest initiatives on biofabrication for regenerative medicine applications in Europe. In this new collaborative platform, the largest research program on 3D-printing for biomedical sciences in Europe is created.
The platform aims at better understanding of the processes at the base of different bioprinting technologies. The initiative was arisen by the necessity to give impulse on a number of technological and material challenges in the 3D-printing and bioprinting world. For example to synthesize new bioactive materials for applications ranging from skeletal to heart and kidney regeneration. BMC and UM want to facilitate the translation of biofabricated products to the clinics.
The Brightlands Material Center in Geleen is a public private partnership between TNO and the province of Limburg and was established in March 2015. It is focusing on sustainable innovations in polymeric materials. Application driven R&D with industrial partners along the chemical value chain as well as HTSM leading to shorter time market is the driving force of the program which is supported by basic academic knowledge. It provides a network of partners around the physical location at the Brightlands Campus in Geleen.
