1st International Winter School on Smart Materials for Soft Robots


Registration for the virutal event is now OPEN (Only for the lecture talks). Click here for the ZOOM link.

The 1st International Winter that we offer to our participants will be academic in nature, but with a strong involvement of industry.

It aims to provide scientific and personal development for young researchers in the multidisciplinary fields of soft robotics and smart materials. For this purpose, leading in the field of smart materials and Robotics researchers and industry members will give presentations and talks on scientific and technical aspects in the various fields of  Robotics, AI and soft materials.

The Winter school is organised by the Robotics section, Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge in collaboration with SHERO and SMART projects. With COVID restrictions gradually being lifted, we would like to invite people to Cambridge, UK. Participants attending in person will be accommodated in one of the most beautiful and oldest Cambridge colleges: Jesus College.

We plan to run the SMART Winter School as a hybrid event.

We would like to thank those who have already expressed their interest.
