As an important part of BIOART, the partners developed bionic labs, which will serve in each institutions for the students. Since each institution has its own aims and means, the practical implementation of the bionic labs is different from one partner to the other. However, they all illustrate the diversity of the different fields involved in the BIOART project, as well as encourages multidisciplinary teaching. The different bionic labs are detailed below.

VNTU

Within the framework of the project, VNTU purchased equipment worth more than 30k euros (Interactive SMART board with projector for educational process, Virtual Reality Helmet, 3D Scaner, Desktop FDM  3D Printer, Desktop SLA  3D Printer, Computer System for Virtual Reality and FEМ, Desktop Universal Testing Machine, Laser Cutting Machine, Digital Oscilloscope, Digital Microscope, Power Supply Programmable, Laptop). The equipment was put into operation. Two laboratories were established (Laboratory Center Bioart and BioniсLab), in which this equipment was installed. Now the equipment is used in the educational process of VNTU for laboratory work in courses developed within the framework of the bioart project. Laboratories are an advertising part in order to attract enrollees and employers in the field of bioengineering.

HIT

The bionic lab created during the project includes an Artificial Intelligence lab and a Brain-Computer Interface lab. The AI lab is equipped with state-of-the-art workstations for computational intensive calculations of Deep Learning methods in the field of bioengineering and bio-artificial implants. The Hybrid BCI Lab was furnished by equipment bought by this Erasmus+ project.

BIU

The bionic lab of Bar-Ilan University includes a cluster to perform heavy computations required in the field of data science for biomedical data. In addition to the new courses developed in Data science and Computational methods for biology, the lab provides a valuable addition for students to better understand the challenges in this field

SCE

The bionic lab of SCE includes a set of Bitalino cards for biomedical signal recordings, a bioreactor and a 3D printer dedicated to the priting of biomaterials. With the use of the Bitalino cards and associated sensors, the course of Digital Signal Processing updated in the course is enriched by lab works based on recordings made by the students themselves.
