TRADR is a European Project developing and deploying technology for human-robot teaming for robot-assisted disaster response. It is on the forefront of such efforts in Europe. The Technology Day will show our achievements and share insights gained during the 4 years of the project, including our experience from the TRADR deployment in Amatrice, Italy, shortly after the earthquake in 2016, as well as the industrial use case experiments carried out in 2016 in Dortmund and in 2017 in Rotterdam. The program will consist of presentations and posters of TRADR scientific results and end-user experience with using robots, practical demonstration of the TRADR integrated system and a panel discussion.

The main aim of the event is to discuss women´s participation in science and research and main challenges facing female scientists. The conference will bring together scientists, policy makers and experts to discuss conditions for women in science and the key factors behind the low representation of women in leading positions and within some scientific domains and fields of study. The conference will consist of two parts. Despite the fact that women represent half of the population, their representation in science, research and innovation lag behind. [read more]
