Student Exchange Program for Cross-Disciplinary Fertilization

The Technical Committee on Haptics (TCH) anticipates the Student Exchange Program for Cross-Disciplinary Fertilization to be reactived in 2019. Future program announcements will be posted to this page.

The goal of this program is to foster student exchanges between haptics laboratories to enhance the development of cross-disciplinary research programs.The program is intended to cover the travel expenses for short-term research-related visits between laboratories, with emphasis towards activities that encourage and strengthen interdisciplinary communication and cooperation. Applications will be sought from any member of the TCH who proposes research activity that promotes cooperation between two or more aspects of haptics research. We especially encourage young investigators, developing research groups, or colleagues from under-represented regions to submit. Funds must be used during the calendar year during which funds are awarded.
