The purpose of ICRS is charitable: The ICRS is a forum for international collaboration in cartilaginous tissue research by bringing together basic scientists and clinical researchers engaged or interested in the field of cartilage biology and cartilaginous tissue engineering. The link between laboratory work and the daily treatments of patients in a clinical setting is very important. To serve its purpose, the ICRS organizes international congresses and various events, publishes journals and provides a universal educational platform to stimulate education and research within the field of cartilage repair. Furthermore, the society supports research projects, scholarships, travelling fellowships and etc.
The perfect balance between scientific learning, networking, and entertainment.
