Since ancient times, humankind has used materials for its wellbeing and improvement in the quality of life. However, in the last decades of the 20th century, the field of biomaterials has grown rapidly. Ceramics and glasses have played a relevant role: from the first generation of bioinert ceramics, to the following generation of bioactive glasses up to the third generation of bioresorbable calcium phosphates. The appearance of nanotechnology, tissue engineering and additive manufacturing has led to a new generation of biomaterials, permitting ceramics and glasses to be developed in multiple dimensions and for many applications. Nowadays, ceramics and glasses are developed for clinical diagnosis, treatment of illness, drug delivery, 3D printing of scaffolds and bioprinting.

Now we, the young researchers, have the opportunity to further the legacy of knowledge and technology that our mentors left to us and join forces for the development of new generations of ceramics and glasses with medical applications.

This workshop has been organized to promote dialogue and the exchange of ideas, with the aim of building new collaboration networks in the field of ceramics and glasses with medical applications.
