The forum will provide an update on the strategy for robotics and cognitive systems in Horizon 2020, the framework programme for research and innovation in Europe starting in 2014. It will present the status of the Roadmap for Research and Innovation drafted by the European Robotics Public Private Partnership (PPP) as well as the additional activities, including international cooperation.
This session will also present an update on the current EU programme, introducing the new projects and opportunities to engage the community for advancing the field and for supporting the industry/academia cooperation via competitions, challenges, shared facilities, experiments, innovation-related activities (EuRoC, ECHORD++, EURATHLON, RoCKIn, and so forth).
Alin Albu-Schaeffer (DLR), Tamim Asfour (KIT), Rainer Bischoff (KUKA), Herman Bruyninckx (KUL), Paolo Dario (SSSA), Satyandra K. Gupta (NSF) and Cécile Huet (EC).
Looking forward to meeting you there.
