About Us

The Scandinavian Society for Biomaterials (ScSB) was founded in May 2008. The organization is still young and under rapid development. The main focus of our activities are centered on organizing an annual Biomaterials meeting in Scandinavian, Nordic and Baltic states, and thereby promoting cross-fertilization of Biomaterials research in these regions. In addition to academic researchers, ScSB regards students and industry as very important members of the society.

ScSB is a non-profit organization and its objectives are:

  • To encourage progress in the field of Biomaterials in all aspects, including research, teaching, and clinical applications;
  • To promote the propagation of scientific information in the field of Biomaterials;
  • To promote the interaction between the different disciplines of the field of Biomaterials as well as between basic research and applied practice;
  • To co-operate with other scientific organizations, governmental and private
  • To develop structured activities on issues involving Biomaterials;
  • To stimulate the creation of research programs on Biomaterials primarily among member states and secondly on a wider international level.

To reach these goals, the following are promoted:

  • The organization of an Annual Meeting at which members of the Society are encouraged to report on their research and development work;
  • The organization and management of congresses, workshops, and advanced courses on special themes that have been suggested by the members;
  • The promotion of young Biomaterials scientists active in member states at national and international levels;
  • The setup of "ad hoc commissions" to address urgent problems in the area of Biomaterials.
