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.

- The aim of the MARLIT project is to improve the knowledge and development of tools to understand the impacts of current and future storms on the coast (damage, flooding and population security), to support the management of coastal risk by government bodies. Participants in this project include the Maritime Engineering Laboratory (LIM) of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - BarcelonaTech (UPC).
