We are excited to announce the launch of TraiN-SafeMDs website which will serve as the main communication and dissemination tool for our project. Besides this, social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin ) have been established to outreach the scientific community and young scientists interested in the development and validation of in vitro methods in the area of medical devices. We hope that our visitors will enjoy our new website, and will find it easy to navigate and informative.

TrainN-Safe MDs Project kicked off - March 15

March 16, 2020 

Written by CEM  

The kick-off meeting of the TrainN-SafeMDs had to originally take place at AIT, Austria on March 16.  Due to the COVID-19 situation in the region and restrictions to travel abroad, a teleconference was organised instead. The consortium discussed the scientific and logistic plans and activities related to the dissemination of the project. It was agreed, that web-site will be launched in April to promote the project objectives as well as outputs. The teams will cross-train each other in the established methods and models in the time-frame of 06/2020-12/2020 and it is foreseen that despite current travel restrictions, there will be no delays in fulfilling the project objectives. Data generated in this project in the following year will build a basis for a larger validation project in the area of the medical devices’ safety assessment in the upcoming years.
