Last week the department of Alumni Relations & Fundraising from the University of Groningen arranged a brainstorm with alumni from Biomedical Engineering, Medicine, Artificial Intelligence and other partners to discuss and share knowledge about the development of low-cost portable ventilators and the associated online training to assemble them. Around 45 people from around the world participated sharing their expertise and providing inputs to Professor Aravind Purushothaman Vellayani.

Mr. Vellayani is Professor and chair of the Energy Conversion group within the Energy and Sustainability Research Institute Groningen (ESRIG). He is the linking pin of a COVID-19 (coronavirus) initiative aiming to develop low-cost portable ventilators and the associated online training to assemble them. The initiative involves in addition to the UG, the TU Delft, research & development partners in the most Southern part of India, Kerala State, and UG alumni from around the world.
