The summer school was attended by 18 students from 11 countries - Belarus, Czech Republic, India, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Nepal, Poland, Russia, Serbia and Spain.
By organizing this summer school, UniTs and RTU aim to help prepare specialists in inter-disciplinary fields, capable of not only developing high-tech products, but also successfully integrating themselves within the working environment of international companies and implementing different inter-disciplinary projects in a team. World's leading researchers, representing different fields and countries, have been involved in the preparation of the scientific content of the summer school, promoting cooperation opportunities of a scientific nature between students and professors and strengthening the international recognition of TU and RTU.
The organizational committee would like to express their gratitude to the Professors for their contribution to the scientific content of the summer school, to the advanced research institutions and companies operating in the biomedical field for providing excursions and presentations, as well as students for participating and broadening each other’s knowledge both on the technical as well as inter-cultural level.
