Welcome to the CIBER-BBN-Young Scientist Forum in Biomaterials (CIBER-BBN-YSF in Biomaterials), the Spanish Local Chapter of the YSF from the European Society of Biomaterials.
Our main purposes are: to representthe interest of the younger members of the CIBER-BBN and to disseminate the Biomaterials science in society.
This Forum, created in 2012, is intended to be a fluid channel for discussing Biomaterials education and training in Spain and Europe, as well as advertising research opportunities and upcoming events in the field and promoting research collaboration initiatives.
As the principal providers of information are researchers, CIBER-BBN-YSF would like to encourage you to collaborate in this initiative in order to have the highest impact and succeed in our objectives. So, please let us know all related to research opportunities, training/career development events, or anything that would contribute to the young scientists in Biomaterials development.
This session is organized yearly in the CIBER-BBN Annual Conference were invited speakers bring us their experiences and perspectives in relevant and complementary subjects for the career of young researchers, such as the publication system, spin-offs creation, crowdfunding, science communication, european grants schemes. We wish the subjects chosen in each edition give the opportunity of networking and stimulate the debate.

This award is established to recognize, encourage and stimulate outstanding research contributions to the field of biomaterials by young scientists who incorporate an international dimension and perspective into their research. It consists of 500€ funded by CIBER-BBN and a certificate.
The selection of the winning candidate will be responsibility of a selection committee consisting of recognized researchers in the field of Biomaterial Sciences appointed by the CIBER-BBN-YSF in Biomaterials.
The award is delivered in the CIBER-BBN YSF in Biomaterials Session, where the winner is invited to give a talk.
Applications consist of the candidate's CVN and a motivation letter. Aplications should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org in Spanish or English. 2016 Award Applications will be announced soon.
In order to give your Ph.D. a European dimension, we encourage you to apply for THE EUROPEAN BIOMATERIALS AND TISSUE ENGINEERING DOCTORAL AWARD (EDA) promoted by the European Society for Biomaterials.
This Award is intended to be a proof of quality and added value to the CV of the young scientists that incorporated additional international elements during their Ph.D. activities: those that have worked in two or more countries, have presented their work at biomaterials international conferences, and have published their work in high quality international journals. It is also, for the Principal Investigator, a valuable proof of integration on a European or international level.
