The project's training activities span innovative research in experimental, computational and applied research – equipping our ESRs with a holistic view from lab to “real world” applications and a creative mind-set with special attention to future industrial applications of newly developed technology.


  • offer young researchers a solid interdisciplinary training in the intersection of Intelligent Mechatronics, AI and Human-Machine Interaction (HMI) to overcome the challenges of automating structural health monitoring and repair of civil and industrial infrastructure through aerial roots,

  • train a new generation of creative, entrepreneurial, and innovative ESRs, fully equipped with a set of transferable skills that enable them to become the future leaders in the field.
