ECHORD++ opens first call for experiment proposals

The EU-funded
robotics project ECHORD++ has opened is first competitive call for
experiment proposals. The aim of ECHORD++ is to strengthen the knowledge
transfer between scientific research and industry in robotics and to
stimulate their cooperation. In the context of ECHORD++, small-scale
research projects, so-called "experiments", will be conducted. From 3rd
March 2014 to 14th April 2014 the research community, enterprises and
robot manufacturers are asked to submit experiment proposals, written in
English only.
 Five scenarios for likely future robot use have been
defined to outline the scope of the research work to be performed in the
experiments: 

 	* Cognitive tools and workers for cognitive factories

	* general purpose robotic co-workers
 	* cognitive logistics robots for
industry
 	* medical robotics
 	* agricultural and food robotics

Each
experiment has a maximum duration of 18 months, the funding of an
experiment is expected to be about EUR 300.000. The total indicative
funding for this call is EUR 5.000.000. Organization from non-EU
countries are welcome to participate in the project under the EU-rules
applying for funding.
 ECHORD++ is a joint project of Technische
Universität München (project coordinator), Blue Ocean Robotics, Bristol
Robotics Laboratory, Commissariat à l'Énergie Atomique et aux Énergies
Alternatives, Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna and Universitat Politècnica de
Catalunya.
 More information and the full call documents, including the
guide for applicants and an electronic submission system, can be found
on the website www.echord.eu [1].
