The ecosystem aims to optimize the implant production chain to deliver personalized products in a shorter time, with improved infection-resistant properties and increased functionality.
Patient specific solutions
In the coming years, manufacturers and R&D companies in the Northern Netherlands together with the UMCG research and clinical departments of the 3DLab, Maxillofacial Department and Traumasurgery will work together to develop innovative patient-specific solutions.
In the future more regional cooperations are expected to start through the UMCG Center for Development and Innovation. The ecosystem was made possible by the EFRO program with co-financing from Gemeente Groningen and the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate.
