The spotlight is firmly on the European-funded PRISM-LT project as it embarks on a journey to revolutionise the landscape of engineered living materials in the European Union. Backed by a substantial grant of €2.3 million, the project’s ambitious goal to create an adaptable platform for 3D bioprinting of living tissue has captured the imagination of a wide range of media, laying the groundwork for a transformative bioprinting platform tailored to biomedical and food applications.
Impact on bioprinting technologies
”Thanks to a multidisciplinary consortium, PRISM-LT is a game changer for bioprinting living materials. Even though we are addressing specific biomedical and food applications, the platform is very flexible and has multiple applications,” explains Prof. Massimo Vassalli of the University of Glasgow, scientific coordinator of the PRISM-LT project and originator of the concept.
PRISM-LT’s groundbreaking approach is poised to break new ground in bioprinting, provide solutions to existing limitations in production and scalability, and usher in advances in biomedicine and food production through innovative bioprinting technologies.
Broad dissemination to a wide audience
PRISM-LT’s launch press release received widespread coverage across multiple platforms, effectively disseminating the project’s objectives across diverse media landscapes and audiences. Collaboration with the press offices of the project partners – such as Cellink and the Universities of Glasgow, Chalmers and Radboud – brought the project closer to the broader research community.
At the same time, articles on websites in relevant fields, such as microbiology and food production, ensured that the project’s potential impact reached and captivated those interested in these topics. In particular, the European Innovation Council’s newsroom has also lent its voice, extending the project’s reach to stakeholders, policymakers and avid followers of scientific progress.
