Welcome to EUROP,
the European Robotics Technology Platform!
EUROP, the European Robotics Technology Platform, is an industry-driven framework for the main stakeholders in robotics to strengthen Europe’s competitiveness in robotic R&D, as well as global markets, and to improve quality of life. To this aim EUROP has developed a joint European Strategic Research Agenda (SRA), which would help focus research initiatives and innovative activities towards maximum impact. The SRA was published in July 2009.
EUROP is one of several European Technology Platforms (ETPs) supported by the EU. The European Robotics Coordination Action (euRobotics CA), an EU project within the Seventh Framework Programme of the Information and Communication Technology, currently supports EUROP.
EUROP's roots go back to October 2004, when leading European robotics organisations started to formulate the need for a consolidated approach to European robotics, which led to the constitution of EUROP as an ETP in October 2005.
The SRA was first launched in 2005. Its revision started in 2006, supported by the European Commission through CARE, the Coordination Action for Robotics in Europe. An Executive Summary of an intermediate version of the new SRA was published in June 2008. The final version was presented in the summer of 2009 and is currently available.
The newly established organisation euRobotics AISBL (Association Internationale Sans But Lucratif) is currently working on updating the European robotics roadmap. For more information please refer to the Robotics Public-Private Partnership webpage.
EUROP does not accept any new members. Please refer to euRobotics AISBL (Association Internationale Sans But Lucratif), a Brussels based international non-profit association for all stakeholders in European robotics. euRobotics AISBL builds upon the success of the European Robotics Technology Platform (EUROP) and academic network of EURON and will continue the tasks and activities of EUROP.
Join us, organize events and show what robotics is all about!
