Project Outline

The SPIRITS Interreg project (Smart Printed Interactive Robots for Interventional Therapy and Surgery) aims at developing an innovative robotics by 3D printing for interventional radiology and image guided surgery.

The Upper Rhine region hosts laboratories with cutting-edge expertises in related fields. SPIRITS is built to combine the existing complementary expertises to create synergies leading to innovations and establish a new research consortium in the Upper Rhine region. French, German and Swiss scientists are involved with a network of 5 partners and 8 associate partners.

The SPIRITS project was launched as part of the Offensive Sciences program. It is supported by the Region Grand Est, Land Baden-Württemberg, Land Rheinland-Pfalz, Cantons Baselstadt, Basellandschaft, Aargau, Swiss Confederation, Baur SA and by the program INTERREG Upper Rhine from the ERDF (European Regional Development Fund).
