We are very pleased to announce that Prof. Véronique Perdereau from Université Pierre et Marie Curie - Paris 6 received  the prestigious price ''Prix des Etoiles de l'Europe''  from  the Ministère de l'Enseignement supérieur et de la Recherche in France for her leading work with the EU-funded project HANDLE.

The HANDLE project is about understanding how the human hand performs the manipulation of objects and to copy the grasping-skills and movement to an artificial hand and thereby move robot grippers from current best practice towards more autonomous, natural and effective articulated hands. This requires a system with elements of artificial intelligence which allow the robot hand to recognise objects in the right context in order to execute skilful movements like a real hand.
