Activities


O1: e-Learning Platform for Telemedicine

The platform will be the technical support to provide an open on-line course in all the topics addressed by the project in the field of neurosurgery and biotechnology. It will contain at least the following features:

  • streaming functionalities for the telemedicine applications showing the surgical procedures
  • e-learning functionalities
  • web 2.0. features (discussion forums for the students; chatting functionalities, facebook and twitter feeds)
  • a role concept allowing the visualization of different types of content depending on the role a user has
  • a network feature allowing users to work together on different tasks and topics

Responsible and Deadline

  • Lucian Blaga Univeristy of Sibiu – IT department
  • All partner members shall provide content and ideas on the structure of the platform
Duration: M1 – M9 (September 2018 to June 2019)

O2: Elaboration of training materials

The elaboration of the training materials will be done in the first year, and then it will be updated yearly, 4 months in advance of each Summer School, because the thematic of each SS is different, which requires new research and updated elaboration.

Responsible and Deadline

  • ULPGC and UNICUSANO will cover information about 3D printed parts to simulate soft and hard tissue, useful for training surgeons.
  • ULBS and HOSIB will cover the Neurosurgical theory and the content related to the treatment methodology, as well as the diagnostic process in a clinic.
Duration: M1 – M9 (September 2018 to June 2019)

O3: Training methodology - Intensive Summer Programme

  • O3-1 - Intensive Summer Programme "Trauma in Neurosurgery"- Year 1 (08.07-2019 - 21.07.2019)
  • O3-2 - Intensive Summer Programme "Neurovascular Surgery"- Year 2 (06.07.2020 - 19.07.2020)
  • O3-3 - Intensive Summer Programme "Neuro-oncology"- Year 3 (05.07.2021 - 18.07.2021)

Responsible and Deadline

Each organisation will send at least three/ two teachers who will teach in accordance to their specialisation/competence.

  • UNICUSANO & ULPGC will be responsible for the 3D printed molds necessary for the training
  • ULBS will provide administrative support in the organisation of the ISPs to all partner universities.
  • HOSIB will provide the environment and will host the ISPs.
Duration: M1 – M9 (September 2018 to June 2019)

O5: Brain Revealed - Handbook for Students and Practitioners

A handbook that will be available both in print and online on the project e-platform, which will comprise all the important information delivered during the three years project. The book will be freely-available to anyone interested.

Responsible and Deadline

Each partner will be responsible for one chapter, according to their expertise and responsibility during the Intensive Summer Schools.

  • ULPGC will cover 3D reconstruction, biofabrication or additive manufacturing.
  • UNICUSANO will be responsible for mechanical, thermal, optical and electrical measurements and 3D printing.
  • ULBS will cover Neurosurgical part & the preparation of an innovative course for training future specialists on the practical and academic aspects of microsurgery.
  • HOSIB will contribute with content related to the treatment methodology, as well as the diagnostic process in a clinic.
Duration: M11 – M34 (July 2019 to June 2021)
