Objectives

1. It will be developed new and improved BMIs with tailored properties or functionalities induced by a new metamaterial surface, using complementary pulsed laser techniques, which will provide long-term corrosion protection and good osseointegration.
2. New products for orthopedic surgery in the form of BMIs modified with thin coatings to support the mechanical integrity, protection against biofilm associated infections, and an early osseointegration processes by increasing cell proliferation.
3. Promotion of clean, efficient and environmental friendly synthesis techniques.
