The Robotics Information and Brokerage event organised by SPARC brought people from the robotics field together to explore the new 2018-2020 work programme and in particular the call for Robotics Digital Innovation Hubs (DIH).
Please note, that the Robotics part of the H2020 Work Programme in 2018 is only calling for networks of Digital Innovation Hubs in the selected Priority Areas (and a Coordination and Support Action), but not for any Research and Innovation Action (RIA) focusing on core technologies. These will be covered by calls in 2019–2020.
The call for networks of Digital Innovation Hubs concentrates on the four selected Priority Areas (PAs); healthcare, inspection and maintenance of infrastructure, agri-food, and agile production.
The Brokerage Day provided a unique opportunity to network ahead of the up-coming calls in 2018–2020 and to gain an insight into the new work programme shape. Presentations covered the current and future work programmes, the operation of Hubs and details of the current Call in 2018.
The event was open to all stakeholders and was not restricted to euRobotics members.
