BIO INSPIRE SENSING
The BioInspireSensing project is a trans-national training network inaugurated to train PhD students, in investigating, building, and producing a new generation of bioinspired implantable sensors of pressure, temperature and acidity. New devices will be made of complex hybrid materials, composed of natural molecules and synthetic biopolymers, with the additional properties of being fully biocompatible and bioresorbable, unlike most of existing implantable sensors; anticipating thus, a new generation of sensors that would not require posterior surgical extraction. BioInspireSensing will take advantage of a unique multi-sectorial and multi-field environment to further teach early stage researchers (ESR) to apply the gained knowledge in analyzing and designing/engineering complex biological nanosensors of medical importance. BioInspireSensing includes a unique combination of research training, industry placements, as well as courses and workshops on scientific and complementary soft skills.
