Sharing infrastructure and resources, evaluate performance and benchmarking in robotics is the topic of this workshop organised by the European Commission during the European Robotics Forum 2014 in Rovereto, Italy.

The workshop will present more details of the H2020 Robotics Call 1 section of the Work Programme related to shared resources and assessment.

Professor Matteo Matteucci of Politecnico di Milano will present the challenges and visions of benchmarking in robotics followed by presentations by Ms Marie-Louise Neitz of Technische Universiät München and Professor Bruno Siciliano of Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II. They will present ECHORD++ and EuRoC, respectively. These EU funded projects are examples of  how resources and infrastructure can be shared and also offers funding opportunities and access to infrastructure for companies. Dr. Lars Dalgaard of the Danish Technological Institute (DTI) will share their experience of sharing infrastructure.
