Kick off meeting of INBOTS CSA project

On January 8th and 9th the Kick Off Meeting of INBOTS CSA project was held in Brussels. A consortium of more than 25 companies from 13 European countries, and headered by the Spanish CSIC, brings together the main stakeholders involved in interactive robotics among the member states to deliver future guidelines for the introduction and barrier overcoming in everyday life of European citizens focused on three main domains: healthcare, manufacturing and consumers. The project was funded by the European Commission under the ICT-28-2017 call and has a global budget close to 3 million euros for the next 3 coming years.

The project aims to overcoming the lack of a clear understanding and communication between the relevant actors, creating a Community Hub on interactive robotics. The members of this consortium, in collaboration with experts from several areas, will ensure the widest outreach of scientific application, training, standardisation, regulation, and dissemination activities concerning interactive robotics for the next three years.

During this meeting, Anne Bajart, head of Unit of Robotics and Artificial Intelligence at the European Commission, shared with the consortium the importance of Coordination and Support Actions for the European Commission in a way that strengthens the industry and boosts the economy. She also brought to the project consortium the role and responsibility of continuing the labour undertaken by previous projects such as euRobotics, ROCKEU2, RoboLaw or Wereable Robots.

Teenagers from Greek, immigrant and refugees’ families participate in ERW2017

In the frame of EURobotics week on November 24, 2017 EDUMOTIVA team (www.edumotiva.eu) in cooperation with the Network for Children’s Rights (www.ddp.gr) offered a hands-on workshop with Arduino projects for teenagers at the Network Youth Center in Athens. 14 teenagers from Greek, immigrant and refugees’ families were familiarised with DIY electronics and robotics and had the opportunity to make their own first Arduino projects. Their question in the end of the workshop was when this will happen again.
