NeoGel trains researchers in an academia-industry collaboration where the joint objective is to create a new hydrogel platform technology. In next-generation biomedicine smart resorbable hydrogels will play a key role, for instance as platform materials for tissue engineering. These materials have potential to address a wide range of medical conditions. To explore this opportunity and exploit the potential, highly-qualified and well trained biomaterials experts are urgently required. NeoGel will address this need by providing cross-disciplinary training to four PhD students in an exciting academia-industry collaboration focused on novel hydrogels.
