SCAFFY

"Bio-scaffold engireered device for brown adipose tissue regeneration"

Grant agreement: 681044
Call Identifier: H2020-MSCA-RISE-2014

This project has received funding from the European Community's Horizon 2020 Programme under grant agreement no 645640.

Protein-based bio-scaffolds are widely used in regenerative medicine to support cell proliferation and regenerate a target tissue, yet matrigel scaffolding can be considered a valuable alternative for both in vitro and in vivo tissue engineering approaches. Moreover, the development and implementation of these pharmaceutical products requires knowledge on drug development as well as on clinical trials. To solve this intersectoral problem, the SCAFFY project will create an effective intersectoral co-operation between academia institutions and SMEs to advance the concept of bio-scaffold for brown adipose tissue regeneration. SCAFFY will put together knowledge, research expertise and resources from two large academic participants with business, market and commercialization experience from three SMEs to: i) ensure a high degree of collaboration between academic and industrial participants though Networking Activities, ii) go beyond the current state of the art though Researcher & Training Activities, iii) increase intersectoral transfer of knowledge though Workshop Activities, iv) ensure high level of innovation capacity though Innovation Activities, v) ensure communication to the scientific community and to the public though Dissemination and Outreach Activities.
