Smart Bioelectronic and Wearable Systems Summer School


Four days of science and relaxation on the Italian pre-alps to discover the latest updates about stretchable electronics devices for sport and healthcare. 

Castione della Presolana (BG) – Italy, 7-10 June 2022 | SINTEC project, started in January  2019 and funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme with  almost 4 million euros, is organizing a Summer School  with the aim of sharing the SINTEC project latest achievements, presenting and testing the first stretchable smart patch prototype and exchanging knowledge with students, researchers, and professionals of the wearable electronics sector. The school will be held in-person at Castione della Presolana (Italy) from the 7th of June 2022 until the 10th of June 2022. The event is free upon registration on SINTEC project website

The aim of the school is to show the novelties SINTEC project will bring to the Wearable sensors sector and networking with companies and other European funded projects to discover future opportunities for the stretchable electronics market. Speakers will present how a classic PCB technology can be turned into a stretchable smart patch, how this 
sensor can communicate with the latest IoT technologies and why this innovative research can be useful for healthcare and sport monitoring. 

The lectures will be organized in two sessions during the day: first, general overviews will be presented by key-note scientists and European industry leaders; then, case studies from EU funded projects WELMO, SocketSense and LifeChamps that supports the event for the scientific program and more applicative issues will be showcased. The event, co-organized by Warrant Hub and Uppsala University, will be participated by high level professionals and researchers. Daily tours at open air and relaxing moments will be offered to test the SINTEC stretchable smart patch, to enjoy participants’ stay and to forge new relationships among participants.  

“We have chosen the pre-alps, in particular Castione della Presolana, because it is the perfect place to study but also because it is a great opportunity to visit a gorgeous place and to create new interactions among professionals” – says Isella Vicini, Director of the European Funding Development of Warrant Hub S.p.A. organizer of the Summer School – “for these reasons, the program includes also guided tours to discover this beautiful land. 

The school accepts a maximum of 50 participants. More info about registration procedures and school agenda are available at: 

The aim of SINTEC is to advance a rigid-stretch PCB technology with stretchable substrate and liquid alloy, and to demonstrate its usability in complex applications, involving wearable sensing, embedded processing, and Fat-IBC. This will substantiate the advantages with this rigid-stretch technology and its improvement area. Industrial manufacturability and cost/scaling issues will be investigated. Its unique features will enable a ground-breaking intra body communication technique that provides secure communication at large bandwidth and low power, allowing for multiplex sensorics inputs from many sensor nodes on the body.
