To prepare the European Robotics Week 2019 (#ERW2019), ten National Coordinators met in Brussels on 7 June. The aim of the meeting was to foster networking between national coordinators and provide creative approaches for this year's activities. Let’s have a look at how the meeting went! Steve Doswell, workshop moderator, broke the ice to find out more about the members of the group and their personal interests.
