Science-grounded Robotics: the TERRINet and RoboCom++ European Projects
Room 2.44, 06/12/2018 (09:00-09:45)
Europe is facing a number of challenges that have impact on the future quality of life and prosperity of EU citizens. Robotics can be a solution to some of these challenges. Europe is at the forefront of robotics research and manufacturing and the Robots can help creating new jobs and may foster a new wave of economic growth in Europe by boosting the deployment of ubiquitous robots and web-based robotic services.
The synergistic and virtuous interaction of the two European projects FLAG-ERA RoboCom++ and TERRINet aims at exploring the grand challenges of science-grounded Robotics and offering the top quality infrastructures and excellent research services in order to set up the frame of a Future FET Flagship initiative on Robotics.
RoboCom++ Project is gathering the community and organising the knowledge necessary to rethink the design principles and fabrication technologies of future robots, by fostering a deeply multidisciplinary, transnational and federated effort.
TERRINet Project is committed to grow and educate a new generation of researchers in Robotics able to design and manage future robots.
The proposed Networking Session aims:
• to present research services, access opportunities and the high-level training offered by the TERRINet Robotics Research Infrastructure Network;
• to grow the visibility of the RoboCom++ Community as a reference point for robotic research and development in Europe and worldwide; to present the Working Groups of the RoboCom++ Community
