Viscofan will lead European project “Triankle” to develop regenerative therapies for ankle injuries
The European Union - within its framework program "Horizon 2020" - has signed the award of a grant of €5.9 million for the TRIANKLE Project, a European research consortium that will allow the 3D manufacturing of personalized implants based in collagen and gelatine to regenerate injured tendons and cartilages.
This is a four-year investigation whose results will potentially benefit millions of patients around the world who suffer from osteoarthritis or tendinopathy. A total of 12 partners from 5 European countries (Germany, Spain, Sweden, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom) will join forces in this innovative project led by Viscofan.
