Dear friends and colleagues,

It is a great pleasure to invite you to the GRIBOI conference in Solothurn SWITZERLAND, Oct 16-17, prior to the Bioceramics 33 meeting,

GRIBOI’s mission is to foster the relationship of world’s experts on biomaterials science and bring together scientists, industry representatives, and clinicians from around Europe involved in bone injectates. PhDs active in product use and manipulation from research centers around the world will also be involved.

Two days of intertwined presentations involving clinical and research topics, as well as keynote abstract presentations. On the second day, there will be a hands-on workshop for people to see products and interact with companies.

Located in the heart of Switzerland’s medical device industry, with one of the world’s highest numbers of MedTech jobs per capita, Solothurn is an ideal place to foster contacts between leading experts in the field.

We look forward to meeting you in October 2023!

The GRIBOI association, or Society for Injectable Osteoarticular Biomaterials, is a  multidisciplinary group of professionals interested in injectable biomaterials.

GRIBOI stands for "Groupe de Recherche Interdisciplinaire sur les Biomatériaux Ostéoarticulaires Injectables", at first a local French organisation led by Dr. Hervé Deramond, pioneer and founder of vertebroplasty.
