The European Robotics Week 2017 (ERW2017) Central Event organised in Brussels will see the “Robots Discovery” exhibition hosted by the European Committee of the Regions 20-23 November), where robotics experts from 30 European and regionally-funded projects will outline how their work can impact society. The exhibiting projects will show robots assisting during surgery or providing support for elderly care, how robots can help students develop digital skills, monitor the environment and apply agricultural chemicals with precision and less waste or how they can save lives after disasters.
Registration to visit the exhibition is now closed. For security reasons, the exhibition can be visited only with prior registration.

Notes for editors
European Robotics Week
ERW was conceived with the desire of the European Robotics community to bring robotics research and development closer to the public and to build the future Robotics Society. Many more than 400,000 citizens across Europe have been part of ERW since its first edition in 2011. The European Robotics Week is organised under SPARC, the Public-Private Partnership for robotics between euRobotics and the European Commission.
European Robotics Week 2017 (ERW2017) takes place around Europe on 17–26 November 2017.
ERW activities are listed at www.robotics-week.eu
There is still time to organise a local ERW event. See the handbook and registration guide for organisers: upload/ERW-HANDBOOK-2017-web-high-res.pdf
About euRobotics and SPARC
SPARC is an initiative 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.
euRobotics is a non-profit organisation based in Brussels with more than 250 members, representing the Robotics community in Europe.
