Joint training and joint development of robot systems to explore the oceans:
This is the aim with which the European network for training and research on
maritime and underwater robotics, Robocademy, has been started this year.
project is funded by the EU with 3.61 million euro deals with developing key
qualifications for junior researchers and strengthening technology
in the field of underwater robotics. Through the close collaboration of
research institutes, academia, industry, and small–medium enterprises in
robotics, marine technology, marine science, and offshore industry,
will provide first-class training and research opportunities for

The Robocademy is currently looking for 13 early-stage-researchers (ESR),
made their diploma or master degree within the last four years in one of the
following disciplines: 

•             Computer Science
•             Math or Physics
•             Computer Engineering
•             Robotics

In well-defined and well-tutored PhD research projects, the Robocademy
will push the state-of-the-art in the area of robust, reliable and
underwater robots. Specialized scientific training modules will enable the
fellows to obtain both a sound basis in robotics and an introduction to
that are specific to their research areas. This will be complemented by a
high-quality soft-skills training programme for and the opportunity to gain
extensive on-site hands-on experience through secondments to maritime
and oceanographic research institutes.
For 36 months the researchers will reside in one of the following institutes
small–medium enterprises:

•             DFKI, Robotics Innovation Center, Bremen, Germany
•             Heriot-Watt University, Ocean Systems Lab, Edinburgh, United
•             Tallinn University of Technology, Centre of Biorobotics,
Tallinn, Estonia
•             Universitat de Girona, Computer Vision and Robotics Research
Group, Girona, Spain
•             Natural Environment Research Council, National Oceanography
Centre, Swindon Wiltshire, United Kingdom
•             Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation, La Spezia,
•             National Technical University of Athens, Control Systems Lab,
Athens, Greece
•             ATLAS Elektronik GmbH, Bremen, Germany
•             SeeByte Ltd, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
•             Graal Tech, Genova, Italy
