Touch, or the ability to perceive shape, texture, softness of objects around us, is a gateway to explore the world around us. It is also a mean to establish contact for interaction. We study how touch perception works in humans and animals, in order to develop artificial touch perception systems for robots and hand prosthesis.

Training

NeuTouch will train 15 PhD students on cutting edge touch related research - ranging from biology and computational neuroscience up to artificial systems design and robotics - and on transversal (soft) skills, to form the next generation of scientists capable of having strong impact in our society.

NeuTouch students will conduct their research and training across different universities, research centres and industries across Europe, to develop a strong background and an effective research network.

This project is funded by the EU Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 813713 (NeuTouch)
