Based in Brussels, euRobotics is an international non-profit organization with a mission to collaborate with the European Commission to develop and implement a strategy and roadmap for research, technological development and innovation in robotics to benefit the European economy and society.
"The rapidly developing world of robotics is opening new opportunities for sustainable economic growth in manufacturing. It is also helping small companies compete on the world stage and changing workplaces for the better, creating safer, more rewarding and more highly skilled jobs in Europe and the rest of the world," said Anne Waltenberger.
"I’m delighted to join the board of euRobotics, to help promote the huge benefits and possibilities that robotics offer to our economies and societies, today and in the future. We need everyone, from business leaders and policymakers to schoolchildren, their teachers and parents, to embrace robotics and digitalization and understand the roadmap of skills and R&D that will help us all make the most of these exciting technologies.”
euRobotics: With more than 250 members, euRobotics is part of SPARC, the largest civilian-funded robotics innovation programme in the world, which nurtures public-private partnership between the European Commission and Europe’s robotics community. https://eu-robotics.net
