5 years project ECHORD++ recently funded

The European Commission has recently funded ECHORD ++, a 5 years project (2013-2018) that aims to strengthen the cooperation between scientific research and industry in Robotics, following the path developed by ECHORD (2009-2013). ECHORD++ intends to act as a pioneer in new ways of community building for robotics and market creation. The project offers funding opportunities for small, focused research projects (so-called “experiments”). Two other instruments will be applied in order to achieve success:

- RIFs (Robotics Innovation Facilities): a physical infrastructure supporting different users groups by providing state-of-the-art HW and SW turning out to be a living lab and a test bed for new robotics technology

- PCP (Pre-Commercial Procurement): tailor-made robotics products developed to find the best way to integrate public bodies in the product development process

All European universities, research institutions, and companies will have the opportunity to apply for funding in a competitive process in two calls, the first will be in Spring 2014.
