We are pleased to invite you to the 1st TENET COST Action General Meeting and Conference “Advances and Challenges of Tendon Regeneration” to be held on 11-12th March 2024 in Salzburg and online.

This conference will serve as a nexus for leading experts, researchers, and professionals dedicated to advancing regenerative strategies for tendon regeneration. The pursuit of alternative therapeutic approaches beyond current conservative and surgical interventions has fueled the development of innovative therapies and substitutes. Despite the significant strides made in tendon regeneration research, there exists a critical need for cohesion and coordination in the dissemination of knowledge. The wealth of research findings, though substantial, remains scattered. This lack of integration poses a formidable challenge in harnessing the full potential of regenerative strategies for tendon health.

By participating in the 1st TENET COST Action Conference, you will join a collaborative forum where experts from diverse fields converge to share their latest discoveries, discuss challenges, and forge connections that will propel the field of tendon regeneration forward. Whether you choose to join us in person in the historic city of Salzburg or virtually from the comfort of your own workspace, your presence will be integral to fostering the coordination necessary for scientific breakthroughs.

We eagerly anticipate your participation in this transformative event, contributing to the collective effort to overcome challenges and unlock new frontiers in tendon regeneration research. Together, let us pave the way for a future where regenerative strategies revolutionize the landscape of tendon therapies.
