The European Robotics Week 2020

- with ABB as Platinum Sponsor

November 23th–25th, 2020

ERW is an initiative of euRobotics, the association for all stakeholders in European robotics. The European Robotics Week was conceived at the European Robotics Forum (ERF) 2011 by the desire of the European Robotics community to bring robotics research and development closer to the public and to build the future Robotics Society.

Every year, since 2014, the ERW changes the central event and hosts an eco-system of various events in the chosen location. In keeping with many other responses to current challenges, the ERW2020 Central event will be delivered entirely digitally, meaning that a great many people both within BiH and beyond, including children, would be able to interact with ERW2020’s online fair, workshops, webinars and lectures and competitions.

Throughout Europe, various activities organized by industrial companies, associations and research institutes dealing with robotics and automation will take place during ERW2020.
