For the fourth consecutive year, the IVIO-UPV Chair renews its commitment to the promotion and development of scientific-technological knowledge in the field of dentistry. This is a joint commitment between the Universitat Politècnica de València and the Valencian Institute of Dental Research (IVIO, for its Spanish initials) that has consolidated itself year after year with a series of educational, research, dissemination and knowledge-transfer activities.
A year full of challenges, work and recognition for the IVIO-UPV Chair
At the 19th edition of the Federation of Business Associations of La Safor (FAES, for its Spanish initials) awards, the work carried out by the Valencian Institute of Dental Research (IVIO, for its Spanish initials) was recognized for its commitment to research and the student scholarships granted through the IVIO-UPV Chair. Joan Faus López, dentist and co-leader of the Chair, reiterated the importance of symbiosis between business and education.
The third edition of the IVIO-UPV Chair Symposium was held this year, with the title “From planning to execution: management of the anterior oral vestibuler in oral implantology advancements”. The key speakers this year were the doctors Jorge Caubet and Vicente Platón, who delved into the advances in the aesthetic sector in oral implantology or periodontal plastic surgery. This gathering has consolidated itself as a leading event for professionals and students in the field of dentistry.
Another consolidated aspect of the IVIO-UPV Chair is the Award given for the best TFM (Master’s Thesis Project) or TFG (Undergraduate Thesis Project) related to the application of new technologies in dentistry. This year a total of 6 TFG and TFM took part in the competition. diseño.” The winner was Juan Carlos Bernaveu Mira for his study “In vitro study on the thermal behavior, pressure and physical-mechanical wear of the surgical burr during milling of the implant bed: material and design.”
The educational and research activities carried out by the Chair this year include the hiring of research scientists to add to the chair staff, as well as internship agreements with businesses for content creation and digital communication. Two of the the latest incorporations are Paula and Daniel, who are at work on the application of ultrasound in oral implantology and Virtual Reality (VR) and multisensory systems in their professional fields.
In the coming year, the Chair-UPV will continue to focus on the promotion of dental technology through teaching, research and dissemination activities. A new change to the IVIO-UPV Chair National Award for the best TFG/TFM is the 1,000-euro endowment for the prize. The deadline for submission ends on October 15.
