About Maker Faire

Created in 2006 in the Bay Area of San Francisco as a project of the Make: magazine, now Make: community.

Maker Faire Rome – The European Edition, on the other hand, is the largest edition outside the United States, second only to the Bay Area edition, the only two Global Maker Faire in the world.

The event places the city of Rome at the centre of the innovation debate and brings together science, technology, innovation, creating something completely new. It is a fair where dreamers and talents mix and create a magical alchemy. It is also the place where you learn, have fun and networking opportunities are created.

ALTAIR Virtual Tour

Come and discover the ALTAIR Robotics Lab in this virtual Tour created on the occasion of the 10th edition of the European Robotics Week 2020 and the European Researchers’ Night 2020!

The tour starts at the University of Verona Computer Science Department yard, once entered in the ALTAIR Lab you will see our everyday technologies and robots, helped by some informative descriptions and pictures taken from our past open labs.

– Industrial robotic arm
– Exoskeleton – Robotic Orthosis
– Force Control Testbench
– da Vinci Surgical System
– Remote control station for the Surgical robotic arms

Enjoy the tour safely, looking forward to meet you in person!

It’s time for the ribbon cutting

It’s time for the ribbon cutting

On Friday 18 September 2020 we had the pleasure of celebrating the beginning of two important journeys that bring the world of research closer to the needs of the Territory and put the University a growing relationship with the productive realities that animate the Verona area.

The common goal of the ICE Lab and the ODINO Project is to create value, skills, and employment through a process of technology transfer for young people approaching the market and those workers who need a new qualification or learning new skills.

ICE – Industrial Computer Engineering Lab Verona

The inauguration of the ICE Laboratory – Industrial Computer Engineering Lab, of the Department of Computer Science – University of Verona – is born in the context of the Excellence Project “Industria per l’Informatica 4.0” won by the Computer Science Department. Located in the suggestive industria archaeological area of the “Magazzini Generali”, ICE Laboratory is easily reachable and well connected to the city center.

For us, at ALTAIR it was an opportunity to present to companies our latest research in the field of robotics and create new connections and networks for future collaborations.

ODINO – Officine d’Innovazione

The inauguration of the Officina ODINO Soave is the first step of the ODINO – Officine D’Innovazione Project [Innovation Workshops] which offers free training excellence courses for young people aged 16 to 30 in the Verona area.

The project was possible thanks to the Cariverona Foundation and consists of the creation of two different Innovation workshops specialized in the sectors of viticulture (Soave) and manufacturing industry 4.0 (Verona).

The Officina ODINO Verona is preparing to open in January 2021, and will be located at the General Ex-Market, next to the ICE Laboratory, and will offer basic and specialized training in Industry 4.0 and robotics, in collaboration with manufacturing companies of the area.

COSUR 2020 – Dates Postponed

COSUR 2020 – Dates Postponed

Considering the current international health situation and the recent trend of the pandemic, we are unable to organize the COSUR summer school with the safety and flexibility margins that the uncertain situation imposes.


We have therefore chosen to postpone the school to next winter (tentatively between November 2020 and March 2021), but we are unable to provide new dates at this time.

In the coming months we will constantly monitor the situation and as soon as possible we will update the official page with new dates and detailed instructions. Please also follow our social media channels for prompt updates.

If you need further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

COSUR-2020

Third edition of COSUR – School on Control of Surgical Robots

24-26 September and 1- 2 October 2020, Barcelona

Registration is open for the third edition of COSUR – biennial doctoral school on the control of surgical robots – to be held in Barcelona at the Technical University of Catalonia on 24, 25, 26 September and 1, 2 October 2020.

The school is organized in two sessions to give students the opportunity to participate in CRAS – Conference on new technologies for Assisted Robotic Surgery, which will also be held in Barcelona this year. Access to CRAS will be included in the fee and represents a great opportunity for participants, since it will provide insights into the current direction of research in the medical robotics community.

The school aims to introduce students to the multidisciplinary environment of research in surgery with
particular attention to the control algorithms used in robotic surgery and the impact of the cognitive factor in directing the control.
Participants will have the opportunity to learn from well-known speakers and to work together on group projects in a positive and friendly atmosphere.

 

Registration open until 10 July

Registration is open until 10 July, all information is available from the official page metropolis.scienze.univr.it/cosur-2020

The 2020 edition is organized by the ALTAIR Robotics Laboratory of the University of Verona and by the
Research Center for Biomedical Engineering (CREB) of the Polytechnic University of Catalonia, in
collaboration with the Horizon 2020 projects ARS (Autonomous Robotic Surgery), SARAS (Smart
Autonomous Robotic Assistant Surgeon) and ATLAS (Autonomous intraluminal surgery).

The last edition was held in Verona in July 2018 with 26 PhD students and researchers attending and
coming from different academic backgrounds: from computer science to engineering to the medical field.
