Robotics4EU, a three-year project funded under the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme, is releasing two surveys to support the project implementation and its goal: to boost wider adoption of automation/robotics in Europe.
Developed as a basis for foundational work and to support the Robotics4EU project implementation, which started in January, these two surveys are aimed at the robotics community and policymakers in the area of robotics.
The data gathered from these surveys will also help identify the greatest challenges, bottlenecks and needs in enabling wider adoption of robotics in the project’s areas – healthcare, inspection and maintenance of infrastructure, agri-food, and agile production – and help the uptake of principles of responsible robotics.
Robotics4EU is the European Commission’s answer to the unprecedented importance of robotics in the modern economy. In addition, its goal is to empower the EU-wide responsible robotics community, comprised mostly of robotics innovators from companies and academia in the areas mentioned above.
