The euRathlon/SHERPA Summer School 2015 has been designed as a five-day course to provide participants with a full overview and hands-on experience with multi-domain real robotic systems. The intended audience is undergraduate students, Master students, PhD students, postdoc students, researchers from universities/organizations and engineers from industry companies around the world.
The summer school will provide an opportunity for attendees to deepen their understanding of outdoor autonomous robotics, to share ideas and experiences, and also to prepare themselves for euRathlon competitions. Participants also will be encouraged to join in new teams for participating in euRathlon 2015 Challenge where ground, underwater and aerial robots will have to cooperate in order to perform a series of tasks in scenarios inspired on the Fukushima nuclear disaster.
We welcome papers from non-competitors, if they are within the scope. We encourage especially young researchers to participate. There will be the possibility to earn study credits (doctoral or basic) from the summer school. Students enrolled in EU Universities, EU Research Centres or EU Companies have the possibility of getting travel support.

2015 is the European Year for Development and European Development Days will be its flagship event.
Each individual and every policy have a role to play for a more sustainable and peaceful world. In 2015, we want to tell stories from around the world to show that regardless of where we come from or where we want to go, our aspirations remain the same. We strive for a stable and peaceful world, education for our children, jobs for young people and a decent life on a planet, of which we need to take a better care.
This year, participants will address issues such as the conditions for creating sustainable growth, the promotion of universal and fundamental rights, or how greater cooperation among all actors can help to eradicate poverty and reduce inequality. On this regard, participants will be invited to debate, solve (brainstorm) and share best practices.
The focus for EDD15 echoes the motto of the European Year for Development - ‘Our world, our dignity, our future’.
The NOPOOR project will be presenting a LAB SESSION entitled " Research for change: New knowledge for poverty eradication".
The FOODSECURE project will also be presenting a LAB SESSION entitled "Visions ofthe youth for achieving global food and nutrition security".
