We would like to invite euRobotics members who are willing to organise regional robotics events in partnership with euRobotics aisbl for European Robotics Week. Specifically, we seek proposals for hosting the Central Event 2022. ERW Central event should take place over 2-3 days during the ERW 2022, 18-27 November 2022. The central event is typically during the first days, e.g. on Friday 18th Nov 2022 and/or over the weekend to attract a wider public, families and children.

The ERW Central Event acts as the hub for all events. We ask applicants to address regionally relevant industries with a focus on robotics. The educational element can be provided via workshops and competitions, as well as interactive and creative events that allow children/young people and adults to engage. The scope allows for a certain amount of flexibility due to the wide target audience and each proposal will be measured on the inclusivity of events. Again, it is assumed that most or all of the range of activities are likely to delivered virtually.

We therefore seek committed organisers who can create a dynamic mixture of local/online events and workshops (by scientists, labs, teachers, schools, robotics engineers, robot makers etc.) to engage with the European public. This Call sets out the background to the ERW and explains the criteria, requirements and other expectations for hosting the Central Event.

We encourage all potential organisers to find creative ways to present and communicate the positive impact of robotics to the public.

If you are interested, please send us the filled application form by 14 April 2022.
