Multitouch is a European project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement n° 860114. The project is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (MSCA ITN); a joint research training and doctoral programme, implemented by a partnership of high profile universities, research institutions and industrial research partners that are located in 5 different countries.
Multitouch aims at providing high level training to a new generation of Early Stage Researchers (ESR) in the multidisciplinary field of haptics. We will create an ambitious environment that free their creativity, motivate them for entrepreneurship, and drive them towards thriving careers. We will achieve this by combining hands-on training, involving academic and industrial researchers, bringing the necessary academic knowledge as well as soft-skills, and by facing off research challenges in different sectors of neuroscience, computer science, rehabilitation, human-computer interfaces, multisensory tactile displays and virtual reality.
Starting date: March 2020
