Last week Dr Will Shu, Matthew Wasley and Atabak Ghanizadeh Tabriz attended ICT 2013 in Vilnius, Lithuania.

Attended by over 5,000 people, ICT 2013 is Europe’s biggest digital technology conference featured a three-day exhibition of digital inspiration, creativity and connectivity. It is seen as the key event for the ICT theme in European funding.

The organisers of the event had invited Dr Will to exhibit the 3d bioprinter, with the trip being funded by SUPA (Scottish Universities Physics Alliance) with additional support from the department of Engineering and Physical Sciences.

The bioprinter generated a high degree of interest with overwhelmingly positive feedback. Visitors to the stand included heart surgeons, mechatronics experts and biologists, plus senior officials from the European Commission such as Robert Madelin, Director General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology.
