Robot Companions for Citizens

An introduction to one of the FET Flagships

The video above was presented by the Robot Companion for Citizens Flagship Initiative at a conference in Warsaw at the end of November. Robot Companions for Citizens is currently one of 6 research initiatives in the running to receive 1 billion euros funding from the European Commission over the next 10 years.

These initiatives are visionary, multidisciplinary and they must aim to generate waves of technological innovation and economic exploitation, ideally in a variety of areas and sectors, carrying an important societal impact.

The Robot Companions for Citizens initiative is on par with the overarching goal of the Flagship Program by bringing together robotocists, material scientists, psychologists, neuroscientists, social scientists and ethicists to create an entirely new robotic industry to benefit Europe. Watch the video above to find out more about Robot Companions for Citizens.
