European Robotics Week 2020 (#ERW2020)
Show details
The European Robotics Week (ERW) offers one week of various robotics related activities across Europe for the general public, highlighting growing importance of robotics in a wide variety of application areas. ERW aims at inspiring technology education in students of all ages to pursue careers in STEM-related fields, i.e. science, technology, engineering and math.

The European Robotics Week (ERW) was conceived at the European Robotics Forum (ERF) 2011 by the desire of the European Robotics community to bring robotics research and development closer to the public and to build the future Robotics Society.

There is a lot going on in Europe during the European Robotics Week: school visits with lectures on robotics, guided tours for pupils, open labs, exhibitions, challenges, robots in action on public squares. The participating companies, universities and research bring their robots and organisations to the attention of the public educating them on how robotics impacts society, both now and in the future.

It’s time to show the general public what robotics is all about and what important role robots play in Europe!

Robotics for Nature: disruptive technological approaches to tackle conservation challenges
Show details
The Sectoral Hubs of the University of Girona and the Global University Network for Innovation organize a series of conferences on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals established by the United Nations.
For the University of Girona, sustainability is a key challenge and one of its main values. With this series of conferences, we continue to bet on our commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals in order to contribute, collectively, to the environmental, economic and social aspects of sustainability. Those conferences will involve renowned local and international experts who will reflect on the need to establish a dialogue between science and society to achieve the SDGs by 2030.

The cycle consists of 8 sessions, the first 3 of a more transversal and introductory nature and the other 5 focused on more specific topics.

The session on Wednesday 24 March from 6 to 8 pm (CET) could be of special interest to you. This session explores the tools offered by robotics in a broad sense (field robotics, artificial intelligence, computer vision, big data...) to address nature conservation challenges.
