HomeTERRINet | The European Robotics Research Infrastructure Network

TERRINet project

It represents the effort made by Europe to maintain its leadership in Robotics, by focusing on research.

The project is also committed to grow and educate a new generation of researchers in Robotics able to design, develop and manage future robots

TERRINet, European Robotics Research Infrastructure Network

The European Robotics Research Infrastructures Networkaims at offering

High quality infrastructures
Excellent research services
Top-level training
to a multiplicity of users

General objectives

  • To serve as a multi-disciplinary, trans-national environment to facilitate cross-fertilization of ideas and sharing of excellent scientific research
  • To enable different users (researchers, entrepreneurs, students, …) to obtain easy access to various installations at providers’ infrastructures to fully exploit their potential and multiply their impact on research and innovation


  • Coherently with the rapidly emerging paradigm science-grounded robotics, fundamental scientific and technological challenges relevant to robotics will be faced and novel and more disruptive approaches will be experimentally taken in pursuing the vision of the robot of the future.
  • Innovation is fostered through a reinforced partnership of research organisations with industry.
  • A new generation of competent and highly creative researchers is educated that is ready to optimally exploit all the essential tools for their research both in academic and industrial fields.
  • The integrated and harmonised access to infrastructures and services resources will allow their exploitation as testing and evaluation facilities for innovation and will trigger more efficient technology transfer in Europe.

Coronavirus pandemic

Dear TERRINet applicants and future users,

we sincerely hope that you are staying safe in these challenging times that we are facing at the moment. The current emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic has deeply changed our lives. The recent and progressive lock-down forced us to reorganize our working routines in smart working modalities and to shut down the TERRINet infrastructures. Therefore, we regret to inform you that Trans-National Access has been suspended until further notice.

However, we would like to reassure you that we will keep evaluating the proposals submitted for Trans-National Access regularly. Indeed, despite access cannot be allowed for a while, the selected users will be queued and access will take over gradually as soon as the situation will allow it. We also inform you that a special application mechanism has been settled in TERRINet to mitigate the delays that will occur due to the COVID-19.

The Open Call no. 4 is currently open: we are accepting proposals under the new mechanism called "first come, first served". Proposals are directly forwarded to the evaluation panel as soon as they are submitted. Proposals submitted closer to the deadline will be dispatched after that. The deadline for the Open Call n.4 will be on May 31, 2020.

Do not hesitate! Get this unique opportunity to be granted with fully-covered access (including travel and accommodation costs) to 15 leading European robotics labs and 100+ best robotic platforms and to get in touch with leading robotic experts. 

For any additional questions, please, contact us at info@terrinet.eu

 Let's take this time of the world calming down to plan our future. 

Stay safe.  

TERRINet team
