In this section, each team has its own space to keep track of meetings.
/!\ the usual Wednesday meetings on prototyping are cancelled !
Technical aspects will now be discussed every Monday @ 8:00pm at Hôtel-Dieu, A1 building, 6th floor
(see below for details)
As you may know, the whole summer 2017 has been dedicated to a reflection concerning the interfacing with our volunteers. Here's the synthesis of what was decided :
From now on, all the efforts have to be made on the industrial pipe, together with our partners. The objectives are tight and quite ambitious, and the few human resources we have on the voluntary side represent a precious source of knowledge and expertise for that purpose.
Voluntaries with technical skills / expertise
- will be kept up-to-date with the current stages of our partnership
- will be informed the latest steps and problematics encountered by our industrial partners
will design projects for students (see below), and insure the global follow-up (guarantee the matching between our needs and the productions made, as well as the recovery and valorisation of deliverables)
/!\ the student projects may however not require too much time and investment for our volunteers, so only projects in partnership with researchers/teachers may be accepted
will be able to take part to the prototyping by giving advices, benchmarks, references, making some tests ... i.e. giving knowledge but no direct contributions especially on the hardware part - this is because it seems inconsistent with the medical certification processes + difficulty to respect tight deadlines for volunteers
as regards the android app, the developments will continue on the voluntary side --> workflow to be organized to facilitate GitHub contributions, @clecoued is working on that
Because of the delays for recovering deliverables as well as the variable quality of productions that might by recovered, student projects will focus only on exploratory R&D/tests/benchmarking for future improvements of the device.
The students projects will be handled by home schools teachers, because we are aware that our voluntaries don't necessarily have time to supervise students, especially if these latters are not based in Paris.
We need you more than never !
Let’s move on together towards a pre-series of a medical device :-)
With that aim, we chose to restructure a bit our workflow. In particular, the usual Wednesday meetings on prototyping are cancelled !
We’re launching a new meeting every Monday 8:00pm @HD, dedicated to the industrial pipe and all of you are more than welcome ! There, you’ll be able to follow-up and help with the technical aspects of the industrial pipe.
Besides, the echOpen association coordination meeting takes place (as usual) every Monday 7:00pm. This meeting spans more broad topics, from medical aspects to regulatory, communication etc... and you're welcome to attend as well !
Looking forward to see you at Hôtel-Dieu, A1 building, 6th floor, Monday @ 7:00pm or 8:00pm :-)
