Due to the ongoing pandemic and the associated travel restrictions, the organisation of the summer school decided to postpone the summer school to July 2022.

ASSIST HEIDI brings students and people with disabilities together, in order to design and prototype an individual assistive technology solution for them. Students will have access to materials, tools and equipment (e.g. 3D printer etc.). The Smart Living Lab and the IoT Lab of UAS Technikum Wien provide the perfect environment for the participants. This is the best opportunity to get to know people with disabilities, to contribute, develop and implement your own ideas.

Target group

Graduate and undergraduate students enrolled in an international or national University. The Summer School is designed for (but not limited to) students in the field of medical technology, biomedical engineering, embedded systems, rehabilitation engineering, electrical engineering or computer sciences interested in Assistive Technology. The Summer School lectures will be held in English.

Course aim

In the first half of the Summer School different topics are presented including small exercises. The project ideas will be worked on from the second half of the Summer School. Depending on the number of participants, the students work in groups of 3-5 people to implement a project. During the group or idea-finding phase, participants can contribute their own ideas based on personal experience.
