LIST OF PROJECTS

 

 

o 2016 - 2018

 

Local Alliances Projects - funded by Academy of Scientific Research

 

Project title:  "Low cost production for human body customized medical assistive products using additive manufacturing tools."

 

Funded by 1.8 Egyptian Million Pounds,

 

Project  aims to improve healthcare conditions for people in Egypt suffering from orthopedic problems which limit patients’ contribution to society. Innovative combinations of medical and engineering techniques will be introduced to Egypt, based-on computer assisted medicine, laser materials processing and additive manufacturing support industries in Egypt to produce high quality and high accuracy bone implants and human body customized tools from different materials. This proposal will further develop existing R&D links between the partners and establish long term sustainable collaboration.
