Research in this area focuses on materials for hard tissue replacement and generally engaged in an eminently structural function. These tasks include both mechanical characterization, microstructural and chemical fabrics and materials and the development of new materials and bioactive surfaces.
Development of biomaterials for tissue and organs regeneration/functional repair. It requires the design of materials able to modulate the response of the desired tissue leading, in some cases, to the regeneration and formation of the degraded tissues, or to the perfect integration of the biomaterial and the recovery of the lost functionality.
- Injectable calcium phosphates for bone replacement and regeneration
- Metallurgy and coatings
- Shape memory alloys (low elastic modulus alloys for the manufacture of implants and prostheses)
- New biomaterials from biodegradable compounds for bone regeneration
- Bioactive surfaces on titanium and its alloys
- Cell bioengineering
- Cell cultures
- Biodegradable scaffolds
- Surface characterization
- To address the need to optimize the resources available in wireless networks TELCO4IOT project has emerged, led by the Research Group on Cellular Communications Networks (GRXCA) of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC).
- The project involves the participation of the Center for Innovation in Electronics, Motion Control and Industrial Applications (MCIA) of the UPC. The main aim is to construct a digital twin to monitor, visualise and manage the state of maintenance of hospital equipment.
- The RODIN project, in which the Signal Processing and Communications Group (SPCOM) of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) participates, seeks to solve two major challenges that hinder the communication and processing of large volumes of data.
- The inLab FIB of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) collaborates with SEAT and the Volkswagen Group Innovation in the Predictive eBoost project.
