How can knowledge transfer and academia-industry
collaboration be performed in the most efficient way?

The FP7 project ECHORD (European Clearing House for Open
Robotics Development, www.echord.info) was designed
for strengthening the links between academia and industry. The two
instruments to achieve this are the so-called experiments, small
subprojects within the Integrating Project, and the so-called
structured dialogue. At present, all the ECHORD experiments are
This workshop belongs to the structured dialogue and aims at
identifying successful ways of knowledge transfer, pointing out
problems that occurred and discuss how to overcome them.
The workshop starts with a presentation of some facts and
findings from the structured dialogue. We will then discuss with
the audience selected topics about knowledge transfer and I/U
Welcome address and introduction to the WS format. Short
presentation on the current results of the structured dialogue
Discussion of statements and questions related to knowledge
transfer and I/U collaboration. These theses will be announced in
advance. The discussion is led by introductory short presentations
for each of those theses, ideally by ECHORD experiment partners
present at the forum with focus on knowledge transfer, if possible,
2 statements, one by an academic and one by an industrial partner
of the same experiment
Continuation of the discussion of theses
A general discussion about the best practices of tech transfer
and an outlook on how this can be supported by the Commission or by
other national or European initiatives/funding schemes, etc.

The outcome of the WS will be used for the upcoming steps of
ECHORD's structured dialogue, especially regarding the
identification of knowledge transfer potentials.
The European Robotics Forum, organized by the European
robotic networks EURON, EUROP, the euRobotics Coordination Action
and hosted by The Danish Technological Institute, is in the
field of robotics the meeting point for engineers, scientists and
business people from all over Europe. The event will take
place from 5-7 March 2012 in Odense, Denmark.
More than 300 robotics researchers from industry and academia,
as well as entrepreneurs and public investors, are expected to
discuss the latest developments, research challenges and business
opportunities for European robotics.
This year's theme of the European Robotics Forum is "European
Robotics towards new horizons".
