Cartilage related diseases are on the top list concerns of the World Health Organization, being the prevention of articular cartilage degeneration a major health matter for which there are few effective solutions. 2bio4cartilage aims: (1) to promote (with and for) students a problem-based learning approach for an enhanced action-learning process; (2) to develop a novel micro co-extrusion with high reliability (to be patented); (3) to engineer biomaterials and bioprocesses for the construction of hybrid and functional scaffolds; (4) to create and disseminate an individual-based exercise program for persons diagnosed with OA; (5) to develop awareness of the society to the OA problem. To contribute to these problems resolution, is mandatory to have multidisciplinary integrated interventional approaches, and perspectives.
