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
The European Robotics Research Infrastructures Networkaims at offering
High quality infrastructures
Excellent research services
to a multiplicity of users
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 challengesrelevant 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.
