Back to work, back to school. Summer’s over for most of us. Now we enter into a busy autumn of events, with the ERL Smart City MK competition, the Topic Group Summit, several webinars and ERW. Various Calls are open, too. You’ll find information about all of these in this edition. 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 September edition.
