15:15-16:00 Hands-on training on Precision Manufacturing in multiple locations (Dr. Guiliano Bissacco, DTU)
In the session of “hands-on training”, modern precision engineers need to develop a strong competence on a number of related subjects, including both theoretical and practical aspects. While theoretical aspects can be dealt with in classroom or remotely, competence on experimental topics require hands-on activities. In this session, the approach defined within the project PREFAM towards the development of hands-on itinerant courses on precision manufacturing is presented and an example of a pilot implementation is shown.
