Shape the future: 3D bioprinting double degree between Europe and Australia (1121)

This case study presents the story of a double degree masters’ mobility program developed by four universities, two in Australia and two in Europe, in an innovative field of studies: 3D printing of human tissue. The four institutions collaborate extensively in research and are world leaders in the field and now aim to offer students a comprehensive international learning experience by setting up a joint program. The poster will examine the policies and strategies that informed the partnership and how these were applied to successfully implement the program. It will document how four universities worked together to identify an innovative opportunity, obtain funding and prepare all practical aspects of the implementation. It will highlight the challenge of accounting for differing perspectives and quality requirements of different universities and regions.
