In order to apply to the EMERALD International Summer School, it is enough to simply fulfill the Attendance Form with all data requested but not later than 9th of September 2022.

EMERALD International Summer School on: “3D printing in bio-mechatronics” is organized at the University of Agder (Norway) in the frame of EMERALD 21-COP-0019 project by the experts of the EMERALD consortium, which are coming from different European Technical Universities (TU of Cluj-Napoca (Romania), TU Poznan (Poland), Politehnica University of Bucharest (Romania), University of Agder (Norway) and one private company (BIZZCOM s.r.o. of Slovakia).

Summer school is organized and addressed to students and professors that are coming from University Institutes of EU and non-EU countries. Places are not limited just for the EMERALD consortium partner’s institutes; any student, scientist, researcher or professor who intends to apply is more than welcome to apply to the EMERALD International Summer School 2022 edition. The activities of this event that is organized „free of charge” are scheduled to be held with physical presence at the University of Agder (Norway) in the period 12-23.09.2022.

Main aim of the EMERALD International Summer School 2022 edition:

The main aim is to bring together professors, students, industrial and medical organizations and institutes in order to share knowledge and good practice experience and expertise in developing, producing and testing of bio-mechatronic systems that are about to be realized for people with special needs (amputated arms) using modern manufacturing methods (3D printing technologies).

Content of the EMERALD International Summer School

The EMERALD International summer school intends to be very dynamic and interactive for students and professors that will be involved in the activities that are scheduled to be organized in these two weeks. 

The main principles of Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Aided Engineering (CAE), 3D printing and Rapid Tooling methods, Mechanical and Medical tests, Inteligent (smart) materials, Sensors and electronics and Computer Programming combined with modern methods of  Virtual Reality / Augmented Reality programming are aimed to be provided at the EMERALD International Summer School by the professors involved in the organizing of this event (2022 edition).

With kind regards, Organizers of the EMERALD International Summer School 2022 edition!


The main objective of the EMERALD project consists in providing teaching resources and methods for professors and students that are coming from the Higher Education institutions and are interested in getting relevant knowledge, skills and competences in the field of 3D printing methods. Through this project, it is possible to boost the scientific excellence in teaching in the field of conceiving and realizing of new types of biomimetic mechatronic systems for people with special needs

The main resources that will be offered by the EMERALD partners’ consortium will consist in: 

  • The developing of new applications in VR / AR / mixed reality for providing feedback related to the testing of the new biomimetic mechatronic systems conceive
  • 8 course modules will be realized to provide the necessary knowledge for materializing the biomimetric mechatronic systems  
  • 1 virtual laboratory platform conceived by the experts of the EMERALD consortium, where students and professors will have the chance to experience the use of biomimetic mechatronic systems in virtual mode
  • EMERALD e-learning platform, case studies will be launched by the EMERALD consortium for realizing new types of biomimetic mechatronic systems for people with special needs
