The European Robotics Public Private Partnership (PPP) is the teaming up of the robotics industry, research, academia and the European Commission to launch a joint research, development and innovation programme in order to strengthen the position of European robotics as a whole. The programme will be jointly developed by the private side (robotics manufacturers, component manufacturers, systems integrators, end users, research institutes, universities) and the public side (the European Commission).
Thus, the main objective of the Robotics PPP is to boost current European robotics research, development and innovation. It also aims to assure competitiveness and industrial leadership of European manufacturers, providers and users of systems and services based on robotic technology, as well as fostering the excellence of its science base.
SPARC was successfully launched on the 3rd of June 2014 during the Opening of AUTOMATICA 2014 by the Commission's Vice President Neelie Kroes.
