Innochain Mid-Term Review and Workshop Seminar at IAAC in Barcelona

Innochain Mid-Term Review and Workshop Seminar at IAAC in Barcelona
July 3-7, 2017

Last Monday the project has been reviewed by the EU Project Officer Nina Poumpalova, Sarah-Amalia Aronzohn and Mervi Himanen as external expert. The scope of the meeting was to assess the progression of the project as a whole and to also assess the ESRs’ individual progress.

The Workshop Seminar is still going on at IAAC. It combines hands-on workshop, in which methods and tools are shared, with a contextualising evening seminar with expert presentations. The three evening seminars and the final presentations on July 7th are open to the public.

The three workshops are being organised by the three InnoChain scientific work-packages: Communicating Design, Simulation for Design, Materialising Design and headed by three international champions will take place in parallel.

Communicating design – Design Communication in Shared Virtual Space will be led by Damjan Minovski. The workshop deals with key problems of interdisciplinary collaboration, and it presents tools for shared prototyping and hybrid modelling.

Simulation for Design – Simulation Fundamentals: the Lattice will be led by Pablo Miranda. This workshop introduces virtual prototyping strategies and presents multiple strategies allowing participants to engage the different phases of design specification, prototyping and fabrication in practice resulting in full scale prototypes.

Materialising Design – Extending the Vocabulary of 3D Printing will be led by Alexandre Dubor & Raimund Krenmüller. This workshop introduces novel materials for robotically steered fabrication and presents different materials for robotic fabrication and allows participants to explore how their formal and structural performances interact with the fabrication-based requirements.
