This event is intended for all students interested in the emerging science at the intersection of computational neuroscience, artificial intelligence and robotics. In lectures and practical courses we will cover all aspects relevant to brain-inspired robotics with a focus on latest simulation platforms. Lectures will be accompanied by talks from external speakers. In practical sessions we will program neurorobotics experiments to study the interaction between brain, body, and environment in closed perception-action loops.

This summer school will be on-site and offers an immersive and highly interdisciplinary learning experience. All attendees will have the opportunity to present their work in a poster session.

This Summer School is aimed at all students interested in the key technology of lightweight construction, especially polymer processing. We will cover relevant aspects in lectures, with a focus on the latest developments in injection moulding. In practical courses at our research centre and in our state-of-the-art laboratories, the fundamental issues of thermoplastic processing from compounding to the manufacture of a complex component can be clarified and tested in terms of production technology. During the course, students learn the practical aspects of polymer processes. They also learn the secrets of some unusual situations and problem solutions in the production of high-quality products.

This summer school will be on-site and offers an immersive and highly interdisciplinary learning experience.
