Training Activity 2 took place in Milan at the Politecnico di Milano from 13 – 17 June 2016
The training was mostly targeted at the presentation of some of the most advanced modelling techniques for the design and development of endovascular devices as well as description of the main features of industrial R&D and production processes.
The event also included in the programme visits to the production sites of two major medical device Companies in Italy, Medtronic – Endovascular Therapies and LivaNova (formerly Sorin Group Italia), both VPH-CaSE Partners.
There was a significant opportunity for the ESRs to network and discuss the progress of their projects as a cohort, during the social elements of the training activities. This proactive approach will ensure they develop an independent approach to their research and maximise network-wide training.
The formal review of this training activity is publicly available in deliverable D5.3.
