“By hosting the European Robotics Forum, organized for the first time in an East-European country, Romania sends a clear message regarding its interest and capacity to be an important player in new technologies and robotics. The Forum is a great opportunity for the entrepreneurial community in Romania to manifest its will to be part of a European Union that supports new technologies and is prepared to use these to the benefit of its citizens”, says Ana Maria Stancu, representative of the local organizer, E-Civis.
The European Robotics Forum 2019 is organised by euRobotics under SPARC, the Public-Private partnership for Robotics in Europe and hosted by E-Civis Association.
After its start in San Sebastian in 2010, The European Robotics Forum has grown into a major annual event with hundreds of attendees every year.
SPARC is the public-private partnership between the European Commission and euRobotics to maintain and extend Europe’s leadership in civilian robotics. Its aim is to strategically position European robotics in the world, thereby securing major benefits for Europe’s economy and society at large.
SPARC leads the driving strategy behind the largest civilian robotics research and innovation programme in the world, with €700 million in funding from the European Commission from 2014 to 2020 and triple that from European industry, to yield a total investment of €2.8 billion. SPARC will stimulate a more vibrant and effective robotics community that collaborates in development and commercial exploitation in all regions.
