It’s August, many of us are sweltering in hot conditions and it’s the holiday season. So, this month we have a brief combined summer newsletter and we’ll be back with a full edition in September. Many of you were with us in Rotterdam for the General Assembly and ERF. And how good that was! The memories will live on. Meanwhile it’s a new year for euRobotics. We have a few reflections from some of our newly elected directors. As always, we’ve found some robotics-related stories from the European media and there’s a couple of calendar items that should be in your diaries. As we always say, euRobotics is a community and we value your participation. Your stories interest us, so if you have news to share, send us a message via  We plan ahead so please give us plenty of advance notice about future events and activities. Pictures are always welcome, too. Meanwhile, enjoy our summer newsletter.
