Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the next edition of the “European Robotics Forum” to be held in Rimini from 13 to 15 March 2024 under the scientific responsibility of the University of Bologna. The event will see the leading experts, both academic and industrial, at international level in robotics come together in the vibrant city of Rimini and will see the presence of the major European companies with interests in this field. The forum has a unique structure and is specifically designed to encourage interaction between end-users, researchers, technology producers with the ultimate goal of improving industrial competitiveness, fostering scientific progress, stimulating networking between stakeholders in the field, and identifying new impactful application scenarios for robotics. The programme of the event is really rich and will touch many industrial and research fields where robotics plays a key role. Having this audience of experts all gathered in Italy is truly an exceptional event that we believe can be a driving force for the competitiveness of the entire territory.

The event will take place at the magnificent Convention Centre in Rimini and will be enriched with an intense social activity to foster the exchange of ideas, revive old friendships and create new ones. A large exhibition area at the convention centre will be available to those who wish to display their technologies and ideas, representing a true international showcase.

With this letter we wanted to draw your interest in actively participating in the event. There are many opportunities with which the event can be sponsored and with which you can actively participate. The organising team will be happy to iterate with you in order to identify the package that best suits your needs and expectations.

We very much look forward to seeing you in March 2024!!

About the European Robotics Forum

The European Robotics Forum, the most influential meeting of the robotics community in Europe, started in San Sebastian in 2010 and has grown into a major annual event with many hundreds of attendees every year. This top notch forum covers all aspects and current themes related to the field of robotics. Researchers, engineers, managers, and a growing number of entrepreneurs, businesspeople, and public funding officers from all over Europe come together to discuss technology push and market pull and how innovation in robotics and robotics-related AI can be accelerated.


The European Robotics Forum is an initiative of euRobotics in cooperation with a local co-host. euRobotics aisbl (Association Internationale Sans But Lucratif) is a Brussels based international non-profit association for all stakeholders in European robotics. It aims to strengthen Europe’s competitiveness and to ensure industrial leadership of manufacturers, providers and end-users of robotics technology-based systems and services.
