In summer 2019, Dr Khaled Elgeniedy and Dr Khaled Goher of the School of Engineering, University of Lincoln, arranged international internships for students from Egypt and Oman.

The School welcomed a variety of students from Ain Shams University and British University in Egypt and Sultan Qaboos University, Oman. Students worked on short-term research projects including optimising soft robotic fingers, developing active low-cost prosthetics and personal mobility enhancing machine for manual fruit picking.

It is hoped that there will be the opportunity to organise a larger scale International Summer School/Internship in Robotics which would hopefully commence in 2020, as part of interdisciplinary collaboration with academics from across the University of Lincoln.
