ScSB 2022

Event date: 06-07-2021

We are pleased to announce the ScSB 2022 meeting to be held from the 13th to the 15th of June 2022 at Jurmala, Latvia. The theme of the meeting is “Customized Solutions” in any kind of areas connected with biomaterials. This can be related to, e.g., in vitro and in vivo models for specific applications, chemical composition and structure of implant materials, drug delivery systems and applications in clinic.

Welcome to the annual meeting in Jurmala, Latvia. As usually we will have an excellent scientific programme and we will not forget the importance of networking and socialising with our Scandinavian scientific community in a relaxed manner. One of the main aims of this meeting is to create relaxed environment for students and young investigators to meet and interact with more experienced scientists. Time will also be reserved for an after lunch social activities during the second conference day to ensure that both, our bodies and souls are relaxed to take care of future challenges in the biomaterials science.


 All the times mentioned in the programme: Riga time zone (UTC/GMT +3 hours ).


Venue of ScSB 2022:


The Organizing Committee of ScSB 2022 is taking care of ScSB 2022 participants, and discounted hotel reservations will be available at the HOTEL LIELUPE BY SEMARAH.

Availability and rates: EUR 90,00-100,00 for 1 night during the conference as well 1 day before and after the event.

Visit Jūrmala:

It is the second largest city in Latvia after Riga. Jūrmala is surrounded by water from two sides - the city's southern side borders with the coasts of the Lielupe River for 30 kilometres, but the city's northern edge - with the Gulf of Riga for 26 kilometres.

Jūrmala's beach, slightly over 24 km in length, is formed of fine white silica sand, which has been brought here by the coastal stream over thousands of years.
