The first ECHORD call for experiment proposals was published on October 5th, 2009.

Research institutions, universities, enterprises and robot manufacturers are asked to submit proposals. Deadline is December 1st, 2009 17:00: Brussels time.

This call for experiment proposals targets the first of the three ECHORD scenarios: human-robot co-worker. However, proposals focused on the other two scenarios (the hyper-flexible cells scenario and the cognitive factory scenario) may be also submitted.

Background Information:

ECHORD (European Clearing House for Open Robotics Development) is a EC-funded project aiming to strengthen the cooperation between scientific research and industry in robotics. In the context of ECHORD, small-scale projects, so-called “experiments”, will be conducted, which will use state-of-the art robotic equipment. An experiment is a small technical research project. Depending on the experiments the equipment providers can either just sell the robotic equipment to an experiment or be part of the experiment’s consortium.

ECHORD is coordinated by Professor Knoll, Technical University of Munich. Co-Coordinatores are Professor Siciliano, University of Naples Federico II and Professor Pires, University of Coimbra.
