European Robotics Week

European Robotics Week

robotics_week_logo_landOur first test and workshop event, on 15-16 November, is now part of European Robotics Week.

Actually, ERW runs from 18-28 November 2016 but we are delighted to be part of this huge educational project nonetheless (the dates for our event were fixed months ago)

European Robotics Week (ERW) offers one week of various robotics related activities across Europe for the general public, highlighting growing importance of robotics in a wide variety of application areas. ERW aims at inspiring technology education in students of all ages to pursue careers in STEM-related fields, i.e. science, technology, engineering and math.

The European Robotics Week (ERW) was conceived at the European Robotics Forum (ERF) 2011 by the desire of the European Robotics community to bring robotics research and development closer to the public and to build the future Robotics Society.

There is a lot going on in Europe during the European Robotics Week: school visits with lectures on robotics, guided tours for pupils, open labs, exhibitions, challenges, robots in action on public squares. The participating companies, universities and research bring their robots and organisations to the attention of the public educating them on how robotics impacts society, both now and in the future.
