Mohammed Raiz Shaffique attends Summer School on Neurorehabilitation 2024

Mohammed Raiz Shaffique, PhD candidate at eLaw and a member of the European Research Council funded project on law and robotics, Safe & Sound, recently attended the Summer School on Neurorehabilitation (SSNR 2024) organised at Baiona (Spain) from 16 to 21 June.

The summer school consisted of plenary lectures and workshops on topics including rehabilitation robotics and lower-limb exoskeletons, areas that are closely connected to Raiz’s ongoing research on Physical Assistant Robots.

Raiz also presented the extended abstract which he co-authored with Dr Eduard Fosch-Villaronga (Associate Professor at eLaw), which was accepted for the summer school. He presented the preliminary results from an investigation into ‘What are Physical Assistant Robots?’, and discussed the implications arising from a lack of clarity in law and literature regarding this category of robots.

He also conveyed to the attendees how the Safe & Sound project aims to use scientific methods to generate data relevant for recommending policy changes in the sphere of robotics, and how his present research contributes to this end. As one of the few legal scholars present at the Summer School, Raiz’s participation and involvement added to the diversity of academic discourse at SSNR 2024.
