Successful groups will build a fully functioning 3D printer during the course and receive basic training in their use and maintenance. In addition, we will provide training in the use of modern electronics and microcontrollers and provide each individual candidate with an Arduino starter kit.
We will also cover: - Return plane tickets from a major airport in your country to Lagos- Return transfer from Lagos to Ibadan- Accommodation for the entire 2 weeks including breakfast.
Please note that other meals will not be covered! Also, only flights departing and landing from within Africa (or Germany in case of groups from German institutions) will be covered. Successful applicants will be expected to partake in the entire workshop.

Teaching assistants:1) Adedeji Kafilah Jumoke (University of Ibadan, Nigeria)2) Faborode Oluwaseun Samuel(University of Ibadan, Nigeria)3) Issa Yusuf (University of Ibadan, Nigeria)
2) MSc degree/Diplom (completed) or higher in biological, medical and related sciences will be considered, up to and including professorial level/head of department. Groups may be freely composed across these levels. Seniority is not a selection criterion.
3) Each individual candidate may only feature in one group application.
Please bear in mind that one goal of the course is for groups of successful candidates to establish a basic 3D printing and electronics workshop at their home institution, and in turn inspire and train others to follow suit.
Incomplete applications, or those that do not adhere to the above guidelines, will not be considered.
