[H2020] New Horizon of European Robotics and Cognitive Systems

  1. 1. New Horizon of European Robotics and Cognitive Systems Cécile Huet, Head of Sector Unit A2 – Robotics DG CONNECT - Communication Networks, Content and Technology EUROPEAN COMMISSION IROS 2013 – New Horizon - IARP JCF 2013 - Tokyo, Japan
  2. 2. History: EU Robotics programme in FP7 (2007–2013) • More than 100 on-going projects today • With over 700 partners • FP7 – Robotics: ~500 M€ funding Largest publicly funded robotics programme in the world (civil) http://cordis.europa.eu/fp7/ict/robotics/projects/areas-projects_en.html
  3. 3. Background: Project Portfolio UNDERSTANDING PERCEIVING Touching Seeing Hearing Advanced sensing PERCEIVING APPLICATION AREAS Aerial Underwater Industry and manufacturing Professional & domestic Medical and rehabilitation Monitoring and surveillance COGNITIVE SYSTEMS & ROBOTICS LEARNING UNDERSTANDING Recognising Interpreting Adapting Modelling Cognitive architectures ACTING ACTING Manipulating Navigating Interacting Collaborating Monitoring "COGNITION"FOR ROBUSTNESS AUTONOMY ADAPTIVITY REAL-WORLD,…
  4. 4. Impact of the EU effort  Substantial addition to the body of knowledge (hundreds if not thousands of publications, papers, presentations etc)  Progress towards deployment in application areas e.g. search & rescue, underwater, surgical, manufacturing,…  Progress towards socio-economic aspect  Raising public awareness(e.g. London Science Museum, European robotics weeks)
  5. 5. European Robotics Week 2013 25th November to the 1st of December Over 170 activities already registered (Workshops, Laboratory Tours, Competitions, Exhibitions, …) YOU…. ROBOTOCIST …..WANT TO BE PART OF IT!! PLEASE REGISTER NOW http://www.eu-robotics.net/euroboticsweek/events-2013
  6. 6. Horizon 2020: Strategy  Stronger focus on innovation and bringing research closer to the market  Simplified access for all companies, universities, institutes in all EU countries and beyond  New instruments to foster innovation, for example Pre-Commercial Procurement or the SME Instrument  Three priorities: - Excellent Science - Industrial Leadership (this is where robotics will be situated) - Societal Challenges
  7. 7. But H2020 is also about… BETTER SYNERGIES BETWEEN VARIOUS FUNDING PROGRAMMES  Increased coordination and elimination of Europe's fragmented efforts.  Coordination of initiatives at regional, national and European level is key.
  8. 8. Towards Horizon 2020: Public-Private Partnership (PPP) in robotics Basic Research R&D Innovation Uptake
  9. 9. What is a PPP? European Robotics PPP Private Partner euRobotics aisbl ● Development of research & development & innovation agenda ● Suggesting call topics, priorities, funding profile Regular meetings Public Partner ● Implementation of R&D&I agenda structured dialogue CLEAR SEPARATION OF ROLES Private Partner: Strategy Public Partner: Implementation The private part is not involved in the selection of proposals 
  10. 10. THE PPP NEEDS ALL THE STAKEHOLDER IN ROBOTICS Make the best of robotics in Europe We need you all to make a difference
