EDEN2020 present at the Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics

June 30, 2016

EDEN2020 was present at the 9th Hamlyn symposium on Medical Robotics. The symposium, organised by Imperial College’s Hamlyn Centre for Robotic Surgery, took place on 28 June in London and gathered leading experts from academia, industry and healthcare from across the world.

EDEN2020 consortium partners Imperial, Renishaw, UMIL presented at the workshop Towards Clinical Impact in Robotic Assisted Neuro and Skull-Base Surgery, which was co-organised by project partner POLIMI and gathered some 40 attendees with the aim to identify the role and potential of robotics in addressing existing open challenges in neurosurgery. The workshop drew a significant crowd, leading an engaging discussion in a lovely atmosphere. The selection of international speakers from science, engineering, medicine and industry provided a unique overview of the state of the art in this space and the feedback from delegates was overwhelmingly positive. The workshop also featured a live, interactive demo of the STING, a 5-year ERC funded project ending in June of this year, which laid the foundations of EDEN2020.
