Quote for Robotics Equipment for ECHORD's Third Call Is Now Open

Quote for robotics Equipment related to the third call for ECHORD experiment proposals is now open.

The deadline is 30 July, 2010 17:00 Brussels time.

In the context of ECHORD, small-scale projects, so-called “experiments” will be conducted, which will use state-of-the art robot equipment. The third call for experiment proposals is planned to be published on 3 August, 2010. The proposers of experiments, typically research institutes, will be given the opportunity to buy equipment from a qualified equipment list from European Robot manufacturers at special prices. The research institutes will perform research and development with relevance to industrial applications. This will initiate knowledge transfer between industry and academia.

A manufacturer can either solely sell the equipment to an experiment, or it can become a partner in the experiment’s consortium. In both cases, a research partner of the experiment’s consortium has to buy the equipment according the conditions and prices given by the qualified equipment list.

It is important to note that a review, update and confirmation of the equipments from the previous calls is mandatory by the companies. The existing robotic list of equipments from the previous calls is not automatically offered to the experiment proposers without your confirmation.

The equipment quote instructions and the related documents, should be read carefully before an equipment offer is submitted. Please refer to:
