Sintx Technologies announced a partnership with a multi-center European industry-academic group that aims to train future scientists and promote the development of silicon nitride biomedical implants. As partner and senior advisor to the program, Sintx will participate in technical reviews of the program and will host graduate students during the course of the program. Silicon nitride offers the mechanical strength, chemical stability and biocompatibility needed to manufacture spinal implants. To promote research, and to train future scientists, the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation program funded a four year grant targeted specifically at developing spinal implants. In addition to the focus on spinal implants, the program aims to deliver 15 PhD scientists through a comprehensive, multi-center research and training effort.
