WP1 Scientific Excellence

WP1 leader: Prof. Dr.sc.ing. Dagnija Loca

WP1 increases scientific excellence through improved research outcomes, elevating the impact factor, number of peer-reviewed publications and Hirsch index. Furthermore, WP1 objective is to build a research excellence of highly qualified human resources and promote international collaborations in the field of biomaterials for bone regeneration.
