This research action involves an experienced researcher, Dr Hongbo Wang, under the supervision of Dr Lucia Beccai for 24 months to work on the project “3D Stretchable Inductive Tactile Sensors for Soft Artificial Touch” (3D-SITS), at the Center for Micro-BioRobotics (CMBR@SSSA) of the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Italy. The overall goal of this project is to develop robust, high-performance, truly soft, multimodal, stretchable inductive tactile sensors (SITS), enabling them to be directly integrated into soft robotics and wearable systems.

This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 799773
