Today the main interest is the European Connective Tissue Engineering centre (ECTEC) which is research collaboration between the Sahlgrenska Academy at University of Gothenburg with the institution of Polymer Technology, Chalmers Technical University. Mats Brittberg has also had research collaboration with Virginia Tech in USA on biotribology in cartilage and osteoarthritis as well as research collaborations with other centers in Europe and North America. Besides pure cartilage research, Mats interest is now also focused on joint preservation research and studies on joint pain mechanisms. Clinically, he has been working with joint restoration the last 35 years.
In September, 2010, Mats Brittberg received the ICRS Genzyme Lifetime Achievement Award in cartilage research and in 2012, the Shetty- Kim Foundation (SKF) Scientific award. In 2014, Mats Brittberg also received the SKF and UK Cartilage Club’s Life time achievement Award.
