As part of an Interreg program, the Competence Center for MechanoBiology enables cross-border cooperation between Austrian and Czech institutes. The three Austrian institutes, LBI Trauma, TU Vienna and Danube University Krems, are members of the Cluster.
Four new members, representing their research group or department, have been accepted into the Cluster after presenting their outstanding research in course of the annual meeting. The Cluster now counts 28 research groups from thirteen institutions.

For the past 20 years the LBI Trauma was led by Heinz Redl. The
bar is set high for his successor. Johannes Grillari, who will take over as
