ACMIT at the European Robotics Forum 2024


The European Robotics Forum (ERF) will take place from March 13th to 15th, 2024 at the Convention Centre in Rimini, Italy. The event brought together leading experts from science and industry at international level with the presence of the major European companies in the field of robotics.

The groundbreaking workshop titled “Translational Challenges of Soft Robotics in Medical Applications” will be organized by Arianna Menciassi and Linda Paternò from Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, and Gernot Kronreif from ACMIT at 8:30 a.m. on 15th March, in the “Marina” room of the Palacongressi di Rimini as part of the prestigious ERF 2024 event.

The aim of this workshop is to explore scientific advances and translation challenges in soft robotics for medical applications. The search for compliant machines that can safely interact with the human body is increasingly required in medical applications. Significant research efforts in robotics have been directed toward the development of novel classes of devices allowed by the introduction of the soft robotics approach. The commercialization of such systems on the market remains virtually non-existent. Therefore, additional endeavours are imperative to develop soft robots that are effective enough to facilitate clinical translation.

This workshop is supported by the EU Horizon funded Project MAPWORMS – Mimicking Adaptation and Plasticity in WORMS.
