Course Aim

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.


  • The Soft Robotics summerschool will take place form: 22nd of August 2022 until 2nd of September 2022.

  • The Soft Robotics Symposium will take place the: 1st and 2nd of September 2022.

  • Registration for the summerschool has now closed.

  • Registration for abstract submission for the symposium closed on the 10th of July

  • Registration for the symposium as a guest is still open!

Target Audience

The Soft Robotics Summerschool is open for PhD candidates in Business, Biology, Zoology, Engineering Sciences, Health Sciences, Material Sciences and Computer Sciences, as well as Employees of start-ups working on soft robotics for health care. The Soft Robotics Symposium is open to anyone with an interest in soft robotics.


The Soft Robotics Summerschool and Symposium will be held in-person on the campus of Delft University of Technology in Delft, the Netherlands.


The Soft Robotics Summerschool will cost €300 including all materials, lectures, lunch, excursions and access to the Soft Robotics Symposium. Accommodation and travel costs are at your own expenses. It is also possible to visit the Soft Robotics Symposium without attending the Summerschool which costs €100. Note that accepted participants cancelling after the start of the summerschool will not be eligible for a refund.
