ICT Proposers' Day 2016

Robtics and Autonomous Systems, Robotics PPP

Networking session

Date: 26/09/2016 (15:45-18:30)

The importance of robotics and autonomous systems (RAS) lies in its strong economic contribution as an industrial and commercial activity in its own right and in its broad and disruptive socio-economic impact across diverse market sectors. The EU's strategic vision aims at strengthening Europe's global position in the robotics market. The main approach is to generate new RAS technical capabilities and system abilities and to move research results into the marketplace, engaging with SMEs and end-users. This will be supported by measures to improve the market and regulatory climate in the EU through e.g. addressing non-technical market barriers and through the impetus of a high-profile robotics competition. The approach is built on the priorities of the SPARC Robotics PPP Strategic Research Agenda.

In line with the above, this session will discuss advanced robot capabilities and system abilities research and take-up, SME and benchmarking actions, safety certification and robotics coordination and competition.
