Dear EUROP members,
We have several interesting and significant topics starting with the EURON / EUROP Annual Meeting on 10-12 March 2010. I must thank the European robotics community for its enthusiastic participation, support, and tremendous input. I can confidently say the members of the European robotics industry together with their academic counterparts have reached a new milestone concerning Robotics in Europe. We are definitely on the right track and will keep the trend going.
The following topics are included in this issue:
- The First joint EURON / EUROP Annual Meeting 2010
- The EUROP / EURON Technology Transfer Award 2010
- ISR/ROBOTIK 2010 - Full program is available now
- Joint Booth of the European Robotics Research Projects at the AUTOMATICA 2010
- ICT-AGRI Call Announcement & Find Partners for Transnational Project Consortia in the Meta Knowledge Data Base
- The Robotdalen Scientific Award
Enjoy the read, and as always, we welcome your comments, suggestions and feedback.
Looking forward to seeing you at the AUTOMATICA 2010 in Munich.
The First Joint EURON / EUROP Annual Meeting 2010
|On 10 March 2010, more than 230 roboticists from both, industry and academia, met for three days in Donostia-San Sebastian, Spain with the overall vision of closing the gap between industry and academia. Based on the enthusiastic participation of the European robotics experts, the conclusion is obvious: both communities, the European robotics industry and academia, want better communication, cooperation, and exchange of information.|

The EUROP / EURON Technology Transfer Award
The EUROP / EURON Technology Transfer Award 2010 was presented at the recent EURON / EUROP Annual Meeting in Donastia-San Sebastian, on 11 March,.
The 6 finalists presenting their work were truly the highlight of the Annual Meeting. The inspiring presentations and their excellent quality made it particularly difficult for the jury to choose a winner and highly impressed the observers.
Finally the following winners were announced:
- First: ALSTOM and ETHZ / EPFL for Highly Compact Mobile Robots for Process and Power Facility Inspections
- Second: University of Seville, Technische Universität Berlin and Flying Cam for AeRial Robotic Vehicles
- Third: Team of Trimo investigators, the team of FE investigators, and the team of IFT investigators for High-tech robotic handler for e-construction
|Finalists of the EUROP / EURON Tech. Transfer Award 2010|
The € 6,000 award for the first place is sponsored by the EUnited Robotics members: ABB, COMAU, GÜDEL, KUKA Roboter, SCHUNK.
