Workshop in Sofia (BG) – October 13th and 14th, 2015

Dear COST partners,


Our next activity in the framework of our COST Action NEWGEN will be held at the Bulgarian Academy of Science, Main Hall, ” 15th November” №1 str., Sofia 1040 (BG) next October 13th and 14th, 2015.


Suggested topics include:

  • Light–induced Micro-Nano Surface processing and Modification of biomaterials
  • New trends in design and development of scaffolds for bone tissue engineering
  • Functionalization of biomaterials


The first day and the second day morning will be dedicated to oral presentations. WG meetings will be held during the afternoon of the second day.

The program of the three sessions will be communicated later.


We would like to invite you to propose title for oral presentations within these three sessions. People interested to give a talk are invited to communicate the title both to Dr. Albena Daskalova and Dr. Stéphane Hocquet (priority will be given to Industrials, people from Medical groups and ECI partners, as well as representatives from targeted international policy countries).


The participation to the meeting is free of charge. Following its  budget plan for 2015, COST Action NEWGEN has the opportunity to reimburse at least 40 partners for their travel and accommodation. As usual, the selected people (selection in charge of the WG Leaders) will receive a mail from our Grant Holder Manager. People confirmed to perform an oral presentation will be selected in priority to be reimbursed by COST Action NEWGEN.

A meeting dinner is planned on October 13th at 19h30 (to be paid by participants).

If you (or one of your colleague from your institution) want to participate (with or without oral presentation), please send a mail to Dr. Albena Daskalova ( or Dr. Stéphane Hocquet (

Hope to see you soon in Sofia!
