The Law, Economics and Engineering of Advanced Medical Technologies

1 giorno 21 ore ago

'The Law, Economics and Engineering of Advanced Medical Technologies' is an international Winter School addressed to graduate students, young researchers and professionals, part of the three-year Jean Monnet Module “European Health Law and Technology/ELaTe”, awarded in the framework of the Call for proposals 2019 – EAC-A02-2019 under the Erasmus+ Programme.
The school expands on the Project-Based Learning (PBL) methodology successfully applied in the Winter School "European Health Law & Biotechnology” (February 2021).

Teaching activities will be carried out three days per week and be divided in morning lectures on the fundamentals of European health law, medical devices design, HTA and market analysis. During the afternoon sessions participants will work in small cross-disciplinary teams (max 4/5 people), centered on the development of a particular medical device. The final examination will consist of the presentation of a project.

The School will unfold online, three days per week, from the 4th to the 22d of October 2021 for a total of 63 hours. Classes begin at 10.00 AM and end at 6.30 PM, with an hour and a half break for lunch. Each class is 1.30 hours long, with a 30-minutes’ break.
Six academic credits (in accordance with the European Credits Transfer and Accumulation System - ECTS) will be awarded upon successful completion of the Course, which requires the attendance of at least 90% of classes and passing the final examination.
The teaching body includes academics from different backgrounds, such as law, engineering, management and innovation, offering a highly interdisciplinary perspective.
All classes will be taught in English.

Insects as Feed and Food

1 mese ago

 

With the world population expected to exceed 9.7 billion by 2050, food production needs to increase by 70%. Food system is under pressure and several national/international organizations found in insects a potential answer to respond to the demand for sustainable and high-quality nutrient to feed a growing population. Therefore, the interest about edible insects is continuously increasing, due to their environmental, nutritional and productive features. Reared insects showed lower environmental impact, higher production capacity and feed conversion ratio efficiency than conventional production animals. Noteworthy, FAO indicated insects as food and feed as a potential and practical answer to the world demand of food proteins.

Insects are part of natural diets of several animals. Conversely, their use as feed in livestock productions is still low due to regulation/laws which do not list insects as an available ingredient. The use of insects’ protein meals or oil could be promoted as substitution of soy-fish-maize-wheat meal-oil in order to lower the environmental impact (use of land, water, sea).

Worldwide more than 2,000 species of insects are consumed as food, mostly in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Entomophagy, the habit of eating insects, was abandoned by Western world several centuries ago. Historically, insects were harvested from nature and due to environmental reasons, the harvesting yield in temperate zones was lower than in the tropics, as insects size is smaller, their occurrence is less clumped and they are unavailable in winter time. Insects for human consumption show good potential as nutritive and sustainable efficient source. Nevertheless, cultural barriers could make them difficult to be accepted as food in some countries.

Even if insects seem to pose a low risk of transmitting zoonotic diseases, allergies mostly comparable to those related to crustaceans (invertebrates) may occur. Consumers’ willingness to eat will drive the entire market, even though insect-based food (e.g. whole, roasted, burgers, protein snacks) or already well-known foods supplemented with insect powder/oil (e.g. pizza, pasta, bread, cookies) are in the future prospect of reaching our tables.

In an optic of future food production with lower environmental impact and increased circular economy, insects as feed and food could surely help shifting the world to a sustainable and resilient path, providing an important contribution to several Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations.

During the Summer School the main topics "Insects as Feed and Food" will be presented in the European contest. From the legislative structure to the farming systems, focusing on the practical applications of insects as human food and animal feed. Nutritional value of insects and their features will be part of the course in the optic of a progressive increase in animal productions with a decreasing negative environmental impact.

The school will be entirely held online, via Microsoft Teams.

Aim

The Summer School aims to increase awareness and competencies about insects as feed and food learning the basic principle and form the students to design future sustainable pathways in the sector. In the next years an increase in insect rearing is expected in order to maintain high nutritional standards to response to human food requirements and population growth.
The course aims to form future professional figures that can be part of this challenge.

Who can apply

Everybody interested in the insect food-feed sectors.
Students, public/private sectors, entrepreneurs, academics.

5G: Enabling Technologies, Opportunities and Research. Challenges Ahead

2 mesi 2 settimane ago

The 2021 edition of the Summer School ‘5G: Enabling Technologies, Opportunities and Research Challenges Ahead’ is organized to offer 6 ECTS (48 hours of front lessons) in the broad field of 5G networks, targeting an audience of Bachelor (last year), Master and PhD students, early stage researchers and practitioners from Academia or Industry.
The technologies, opportunities and research challenges of 5G networks will be presented and discussed during the school.
Lessons will be held in English at the Meeting Room of the Dipartimento di Ingegneria dell’Informazione (DII), via G. Caruso 16, Pisa, Italy.

The program will be activated also in distance learning mode (TEAMS platform).

Aim

Together with high-capacity fixed networks, 5G will provide the connectivity needed for the digital transformation. With respect to previous generations, 5G constitutes a revolutionary transformation of communications: its new radio improves performance in terms of speed, latency, terminal density and power consumption. However, the real novelty of 5G is the revolution it entails in terms of creating and facilitating new and diversified services and enabling new non-human users. Thanks to its software network and full integration with the cloud, 5G will enable new use scenarios, with a significant impact in every sector: agriculture, commerce, defence, energy, finance, health, industry, media, public administration, safety, transport.

The summer school provides lessons, from the industry and academic community, about the enabling technologies and methodologies in 5G networks and applications. The 5G Summer School aspires to give attendees the opportunity to learn about the architecture and promise of 5G networks. No prior familiarity with the technology is required, and the intent is to give the attendees a solid foundation in the technology, the current issues and the key user benefits.

A final exam is foreseen. After passing the exam the University of Pisa will register the course as an official exam of 6 ECTS.

Who can apply

Bachelor (last year), Master and PhD students, in the field of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Management) disciplines, early stage researchers and practitioners from Academia or Industry.
