European Robotics Projects

H2020 Program

2020 is the closing year of the European Commission's Horizon 2020 Framework program. It has been the biggest European Research and Innovation program ever, with nearly €80 billion in funding made available over a seven-year period from 2014 to 2020.

Robotics was particularly active in H2020 scope with €2.8 billion of funding: the largest civilian program in robotics worldwide! Cécile Huet, Deputy Head of "Robotics and AIUnit for the European Commission, has shared with us a few words on the program and her insights.

The majority of these successful projects are present at ICRA'20 Virtual, visit our Research Showcase.

They are also eager to chat of their works; links below will take you to their slack channels.

Live Project Streams - Straight from the Labs

We have organized Live Project Presentations with real-time demos and more ! Watch on Big Screen or on IEEE.TV with Q&A.

ReconCell project's goal was to develop a widely autonomous robotic workcell allows very short, self-adaptable and affordable changeovers under the conditions demanded and based on end-user needs. This was achieved with the collaboration of the consortium's partners, ranging from SMEs, research institutions and partners from the robotics industry. Tuesday,
