Press Release-The robotic industry in Europe is coming to Bucharest!

Sharing is caring!

Between 20-22 March 2019, Romania will host the largest robotic event in Europe: European Robotics Forum – the annual meeting place of the robotics industry, which will bring together more than 1 000 researchers, engineers, managers and a growing number of entrepreneurs and businessmen on the mainland. In the event, which will take place at the JW Marriott Bucharest Grand Hotel, will host applications in the field of robotics, ongoing or completed research, discussions on European level regulations in this area, as well as topics such as Roboethics and digital education.

“This year, at the European Forum of Robotics (ERF2019) to be held Romania, we will mark 10 years of existence and the fact that it has become the main event dedicated to robotics in Europe, with more than 1000 participants. Within it, top European experts will present strategies in the AI and robotics field aimed at improving the lives of people and society. An important issue in the coming period will be the role played by regions in the future digital innovation hubs (DIH) networks that have been formed in a recent H2020 project. Digital innovation hubs are designed to provide a sustainable ecosystem for the factors involved in the field of robotics in order to contribute to the digitisation of industry and, subsequently, to the creation of new jobs and the growth of the economy in all regions, Including the regions of Romania. “- Reinhard Lafrenz, Secretary General EuRobotics.

“Last year, with the support of organizations across the country, we managed to put Romania in third place on the map of European robotics. This year we bring robotics from Europe to Romania! Beyond the importance of the European Robotics Forum itself, I believe it is a great opportunity for Romania. I would like the local companies in the field of robotics, as well as the educational institutions, to be able to take this opportunity to present themselves and to lay the foundations for future solid partnerships. “– Ana-Maria Stancu, president of the E-Civis Association, Local organizer of the forum.

Since the first edition of San Sebastian in 2010, the European Robotics Forum has developed into an event of major importance in the European robotics industry, with hundreds of participants each year. The latest edition of this Forum, from 2018, took place in Tampere, Finland. The European Forum of Robotics is organized by EuRobotics under the umbrella of SPARC, a private public partnership for the development of robotics in Europe. ERF 2019 is hosted by the E-Civis Association, in collaboration with the Polytechnic University of Bucharest and the University of Bucharest, Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics.

About EuRobotics and SPARC Eu

Robotics is a non-profit based organization in Brussels that aims to develop robotics for the benefit of the European economy and society. With over 250 members, EuRobotics offers the robotic community the tool called SPARC, collaboration in public/private partnership with the European Commission. (www.eu-robotics.net) SPARC, the Private Public Partnership (PPP) between the European Commission and the EuRobotics, is a European initiative to support and develop European leadership in the civil robotics industry. Its aim is to position strategic European robotics in the world, thus bringing major benefits for the European economy and society. SPARC is the world’s largest research and innovation programme in the field of civil robotics, with a funding of 700 million from the European Commission in the period 2014 – 2020 tripled by European industry, thus reaching to a total investment of 2.8 billion Euros. SPARC will continue to stimulate and support a community in the increasingly vibrant and efficient robotics that collaborates with a view to developing successful technological transfer and commercial exploitation in all regions.
