From a total of 79 submitted projects for the second stage, for the 28 best-ranked projects travel and full-board will be provided for one team member to attend the First Conference on Collaborative Biomedical Engineering for Open Source Medical Technologies and the UBORA Design School to be held at University of Pisa from 1st to 2nd and from 3rd to 7th September 2018, respectively.
For the other projects, because they were nevertheless an excellent contribution, one team member will be invited to attend the Conference and the UBORA Design School, too.
Priority for enrollment will be given accordingly to the final ranking, up to a total of 40 participants.
However, we cannot provide any travel or accommodation costs: the team member has to provide his/her own expenses or request a travel bursary from their university.
All the participants will be personally contacted by our Management Office, for detailed instructions, regarding travel and accommodation.
Finally, we will invite ALL of you to participate in the UBORA e-infrastructure to further develop your projects, which will take you through the design, classification and fabrication process. You will be able to co-create with other designers with the help of mentors from industry and academia. We hope to count on you as pioneers for the design of safe and open medical devices to enable access to quality healthcare for all.
