NATIONAL TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY OF ATHENS (NTUA)

image010The National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) is the oldest and most prestigious educational institution of Greece in the field of technology, and has contributed unceasingly to the country's scientific, technical and economic development. The department of Materials Science & Engineering within the School of Chemical Engineering at NTUA has been involved with the synthesis and characterization of various materials in the nano and micro scales. The scientific research team of NTUA has laboratories with state of the art equipment for material synthesis and characterization such as X-ray diffraction Analysis (XRD), Thermal Gravimentric Analysis (TGA), Environmental Scanning Electron Microscopy with Energy Dispersive X-Ray Analysis (SEM-EDAX), Visible and Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Analysis, Near Infrared and Thermographic characterisation of coatings.

NTUA will be work package leader in WP2 and will be also responsible for the research and development in lab scale production process. NTUA will also conduct the research activities in WP5 with the advisory support of TIC.

NTUA is a prestigious institution with long term experience in the field and that’s why it was selected by the SMEs.

  • The next step

    The next step in our novel approach is the application of ZrO2/Zr coating on the implant using Laser Engineered Net Shape techniques to give better wear resistance and lower the possibility of interfacial separation under repeated loading condition.

  • Taking a new route

    NewBioGen is taking a new route to establish methods that yield high precision and quality biomaterials and will validate their increased biocompatibility, wear resistance, corrosion resistance, enhanced mechanical and tribological properties.
