International Summer School: Regulation of Robotics & AI
Show details
Dirpolis Institute of the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies of Pisa has activated the 1st edition of the Summer School “The Regulation of Robotics & AI in Europe: Legal, Ethical and Economic Implications”, pursuant to art. 3 of the Charter.

The Summer School is part of a three-year project that was awarded in the framework of the Call for proposals 2018 – EAC/A05/2017 under the Jean Monnet Activities of the Erasmus+ Programme – Jean Monnet “Centre of Excellence on the Regulation of Robotics and Artificial Intelligence”.

The course will be offered at the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies from the 1st to the 6th of July 2019, for a total of 40 hours. Two academic credits (in accordance with the European Credits Transfer and Accumulation System - ECTS) will be awarded upon successful completion of the Course, which requires the attendance of at least 90% of classes and passing the final examination. The Summer School will be taught in English.

The Course will provide participants with an advanced understanding of the European framework of robotics and AI technologies.

Target audience
The Summer School aims at providing international students, policy makers, and professionals from different backgrounds with the knowledge and interdisciplinary skills necessary to understand the different issues posed by the development and diffusion of robotics in EU, namely to: design robots/counsel enterprises, ensuring compliance with applicable regulation, technical-ethical standards, social acceptability and respect of the CFR, develop risk-management strategies and entrepreneurship models, as well as define new EU policies on these matters.

Artificial Intelligence for Manufacturing Workshop
Show details
EFFRA, the European Commission, the Big Data Value association and euRobotics are co-organizing a workshop on Artificial Intelligence for Manufacturing.
Date and time: 2 July, 2019, 9:30 AM – 5:00 PM
Venue: BluePoint Brussels, Boulevard Auguste Reyers 80, 1030 Brussels

The aim of the workshop is to provide an insight into:
- How research and innovation projects and European or International Initiatives are already addressing Artificial Intelligence for manufacturing
- Artificial Intelligence- needs & requirements from the point of view of manufacturers
- The state of the art, i.e. how today’s solutions address the current needs and what will be the future requirements in better integrating artificial intelligence in existing systems.

During coffee breaks, participants will have the possibility to network and also to possibly talk about the planned Factories of the Future 2020 call on artificial intelligence for manufacturing which will open later this year.

European Robotics Week 2019 (#ERW2019)
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!

The central event of ERW2019 will take place in Poznan, Poland, on 14-16 November.

Joining forces to boost AI adoption in Europe
Show details
The European robotics association (euRobotics) and the Big Data Value Association (BDVA) are publishing an initial version of a joint Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda for an AI PPP in Europe on the 6th June in Brussels. This is in response to the Commission Communication on AI published in December 2018 and follows the publication of the joint Vision Paper in March 2019.
Europe has a strong and growing economy in the areas of robotics and data driven AI. Integrated value chains together with a combination of key enabling technologies has the power to transform the economy as well as society. No single initiative, no single country, no single company, or market segment can address this vision alone. A network of stakeholders is needed. Driven by euRobotics and BDVA, we have set up activities to formulate a vision and a Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda.
To inform you about this, to establish with you a collaborative, trustful and open relationship to achieve a competitive AI in Europe we want to invite you to this event to share our vision and join forces. This is about bringing stakeholders together around data, robotics, IoT, 5G, cybersecurity, the economy and society to build successful, deployable AI in Europe.
Let us inform each other, let’s discuss between ourselves and let’s start the next joint steps towards delivering AI in Europe.
