Workshop, 5th March, 08:30
By outlining Danish Strongholds in robotics, this
workshop will give a quick overview of the possibilities to work
with Danish innovation partners and academia.
Denmark has an established research structure in the field of
robotics and welfare technology with three major research groups at
the University of Southern Denmark with main Campus in Odense
(SDU), at Aalborg University (AAU), and at the Danish Technological
University in Copenhagen (DTU). The research groups at SDU, AAU and
DTU are involved in a substantial number of European and national
projects. The Danish Technological Institute (DTI) in Odense takes
the role of organizing the transfer between universities and
companies. All organizations mentioned above are partners in the
national innovation network RoboCluster.
This workshop will allow future partners in EU projects find
their right partner in Denmark. Participants can prepare by taking
EU project ideas to the workshop.

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".
