EDEN2020 - Enhanced Delivery Ecosystem for Neurosurgery in 2020
The Mechatronics in Medicine Laboratory was awarded a prestigious €8.3M Research and Innovation Action (RIA) on robotic-assisted neurosurgical drug delivery.
The Imperial team, headed by Dr Rodriguez y Baena, will coordinate the project, named EDEN2020, which will also benefit from strong industrial presence (Renishaw plc. and XoGraph ltd.), a 1st class clinical team in Italy (Universita’ di Milano, San Raffaele and Politecnico di Milano) lead by Prof. Lorenzo Bello, and the involvement of leading experts in intra-operative imaging (Technical University of Munich) and shape sensing (Universitair Medisch Centrum Groningen).
EDEN2020 will begin on the 1st of April 2016. EDEN2020 will receive funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 688279.
