The Project

Codice  Progetto DEEP : 2021-1-IT01-KA220-VET-000034658

The objective of DEEP is to create a training model that is able to bring together professionals from different professional categories, overcoming the current logic that disability is a topic limited to specific sectors.

This training model will have the following specific objectives:

– to develop skills in the field of 3D prototyping;

– to bring the world of social and health care to the potential of the use of 3D printing in the world of disability;

– to make makers acquire and increase in social and health care professionals, relational and pro-social skills essential to work with people with disabilities;

– to reach the description of units of learning outcomes assessable and, therefore, usable in the description and evaluation of professional profiles).

Taking charge of the person with disabilities, in its entirety, needs a set of skills that make a holistic approach necessary. The direct target of DEEP will be composed of: health professionals (doctors, psychologists, nurses, physiotherapists), occupational therapists and experts in the field of 3D printers (defined as makers). Only with a change in the logic of taking care of the disabled, which is no longer purely “welfare” is possible to go in the right and authentic direction of social inclusion (first horizontal priority). Inclusion is a right based on the full participation of people with disabilities in all spheres of life, on the basis of equality in relation to others, without discrimination, respecting dignity and enhancing human diversity, through appropriate interventions and the overcoming of obstacles and prejudices. Inclusion is effective only with the direct participation of excluded and discriminated people (Griffo, 2007)

Where you can find us


HUB is the space where the best talents of the 4.0 generation grow.

HUB networking is rooted in Italy and abroad, creating a network that is always open to new collaborations in the tech sector. In fact, the Hubbers are the small entrepreneurial realities that share the physical spaces of HUB every day. They all work in the digital innovation sector, ranging from aeronautics to 3D printing, from augmented reality to home automation. They network and share knowledge, creating a virtuous environment in which to grow, each with their own business.


The training centre HERTIN operates as a training provider for social and health workers in public hospitals and private health care facilities and it will bring to the project its knowledge of the training of adult proffesionals based on more than 20 years experiences.

The INVENT MEDICAL as an associated partner of the project is one of the most advanced specialist on 3D printing with focus on medical help. The mission of this company, which specialises in 3D printing of orthotic and prosthetic products, is to liberalise and disseminate 3D prototyping to all healthcare professionals, in particular doctors and clinical specialists.
