Summerschool and Symposium on Soft Robotics in healthcare

22nd of August 2022 - 2nd of September  2022

The Soft Robotics Summerschool is just around the corner, and we are so excited for you to see what’s in store. We’ve brought together a unique and inspiring group of speakers, and our schedule is full of engaging events and meetups. Don’t miss out! The last two days of the Summerschool are all about the soft robotics symposium. You can register for the Summerschool & Symposium or only the Symposium.

Home: Welcome


The 4TU proudly presents the Dutch Soft Robotics Summerschool. Soft robotics explores how robots can be built from soft materials to make them inherently safe and versatile. This field of research integrates knowledge from many different disciplines, including material science, engineering science, computer science, biology, zoology, health science, and business innovation. In this summerschool, we will bring together expertise from these disciplines and discuss how to use and combine the knowledge from these different fields in the design of soft robots. This 2-week summerschool is filled with lectures, workshops, case studies, tours of our research facilities, and social events to get you acquainted with the different aspects of soft robotics.
