Work Package 1 Technical Training

The workshop has been organized in two parts. The first organized by the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna in the framework of the Soft Robotics Week (April 13 – 17, Livorno, Italy). The second part was organized by the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia in Genova.

International experts across multiple fields in the scientific community of soft robotics, industrial leaders, young researchers and students, met together to discuss current research activities and applications and to face future frontiers for the field of soft robotics.

The programme followed a combined lectures and practical sessions (hands on/technical skills training) format. The working group sessions for the students trained them using on-line tools and hardware kit to design and build soft robots for target applications with relevance to “Dexterous, Soft and Compliant Robotics in Manufacturing”.
