In June 2019, Professor Harris was invited to act as a senior mentor at a digital manufacturing and medicine event in Peru entitled “Digital Hospitals”.
The four day event provided UK and Peru based researchers with an opportunity for unique dialogue, training and debate about the use of novel digital design and manufacturing techniques across several healthcare areas.
Specialists from various UK educational and Peruvian institutions were invited to present their respective research, and show how their manufacturing innovations can benefit global healthcare.
Prof Harris said ‘I was impressed by the research that I saw being conducted in Peru. It also allowed me to recognise some of the unique challenges they face as a region in medical and manufacturing technologies. I hope that we may be able to form further collaborative activities to assist one another and widen the impact of these technology fields’.
