The aim of this ERASMUS+ project is to adapt, modernise and restructure the existing curricula in artificial implants for bio-engineering degrees in Israel and Ukraine, to develop new certified courses, and to test the innovative curriculum and disseminate the results.

In the context of the Copenhagen declaration, the EU 2020 flagship initiative and the 2011 EU Modernisation Agenda, this project will support the modernisation and internationalisation of higher education in artificial implants program (AIP) through the innovation of two cycles curriculum, in line with new development in the area, the labour market demand and best practices. It aims to assist the partner countries in reforming their higher education systems according to the principles of the "Bologna process". Adjusting the education programs to the needs mentioned above means not only adjusting traditional curricula to Bologna process and providing them with a more practical orientation, but also to implement generic courses needed to expand the educational offer, to modernize existing ones, and establish new well-equipped labs.

The team from the Department for Integrated Sensor Systems has designed a course module on implantable sensors and systems, contributed knowledge in the field of regenerative medicine and biotechnology and organized a summer school and student contest as the final event. 

We would especially like to congratulate our intern Michael Lackinger, who was among the winners of the hackathon organized as part of the summer school. We are happy about the commitment of all participating students from seven countries and their great achievements during the hackathon, in which they developed a medical device for use in space.
