Identifying Europe's strengths, building up European communities...
EUROP is one of several European Robotics Technology Platforms (ETPs).
An ETP is a mechanism
- that brings together the main stakeholders in a research and development field;
- to identify common research and development goals of industrial relevance and develop a roadmap to achieve these goals.
The roadmap addresses both the technology and non-technology barriers for the development, deployment and use of technologies, including research, regulations, standards, financial aspects, social acceptance, skills and training needs, etc;
The stakeholders include industry, academia and the investors in research, public or private, that can support the realisation of the roadmap.
