In Europe, the world of robotics enjoyed a renewed burst of activity before the summer break. After ICRA came to London, Automatica went to Munich – and so did euRobotics, as you can read in this edition. But while some of our members will inevitably be away on family holidays (whether that’s up in the mountains, in cities or simply in the sea) or even at summer schools, there are still plenty of events to come this year and you can rely on us to cover them in the newsletter. As always there’s information about euRobotics members and some robotics-related stories from the external media. If you have news of your own, tell us via If we can share it, we will. Pictures are always welcome.  Meanwhile, enjoy our Midsummer edition.
