euRobotics aisbl (Association Internationale Sans But Lucratif) is a Brussels based international non-profit association for all stakeholders in European robotics. It was founded in September 2012 with the aim to strengthen Europe’s competitiveness and to ensure industrial leadership of manufacturers, providers and end-users of robotics technology-based systems and services.
The objectives of euRobotics are to boost European robotics research, development and innovation and to foster a positive perception of robotics. It aims at:
- strengthening competitiveness and ensuring industrial leadership of manufacturers, providers and end users of robotics technology-based systems and services;
- the widest and best uptake of robotics technologies and services for professional and private use;
- the excellence of the science base of European robotics.
euRobotics builds upon the success of the European Robotics Technology Platform (EUROP) and the academic network of EURON, leading towards the establishment of one sustainable organisation for the entire European robotics community. The association has been nurtured by the partners of euRobotics, a Coordination Action funded by the EC under FP7 which started in 2010 and ended in December 2012. Since 2014, euRobotics collaborates with the European Commission in the Public-Private Partnership SPARC under Horizon2020 to develop and implement a strategy and a road-map for research, technological development and innovation in robotics.
From 2014, euRobotics collaborated with the European Commission in the Public-Private Partnership SPARC under Horizon2020 to develop and implement a strategy and a road-map for research, technological development and innovation in robotics. SPARC’s term has now ended and a new partnership was created (ADRA – AI, Data and Robotics Association asbl) in May 2021, with euRobotics as a founding partner. Through ADRA, euRobotics will collaborate in the Horizon Europe programme (2021-2027).
