Abstract Background: The ageing population puts a high burden on the society in terms of costs of healthcare and loss of quality of life. The need for bone and joint replacement implants is increasing with older age, and musculo­skeletal conditions are the second-greatest cause of disability globally. Objectives: The main objective of the BBCE project is to establish the joint Baltic Biomaterials Centre of Excellence focused on the advanced biomaterial development for medical applications. Within the frame of critical-mass formation in research and development, also the cooperation between industry and research organisations will be encouraged, leading to technology transfer and delivery of new products in to the market.
