Dear roboticists,

we would like to invite you to discover our Robotics Innovation 
Facilities (RIFs), their technical equipment, application domains and 
services by watching the brand new corporate videoon the ECHORD++ 
YouTube channel:


Our RIFs give you free access to high-tech robotics equipment and 
expertise in a wide range of application domains, such as collaborative 
robots, manufacturing, healthcare, logistics and agriculture. We offer 
all of these services at virtually zero risk, in a partnership, with 
safeguarded intellectual property.

Every company, institution or research organisation can apply for a RIF 
engagement, no matter which area they come from and whether they already 
have robotics experience or not. The three RIFs within the ECHORD++ 
project are located in the UK (Bristol), France (Paris-Saclay) and Italy 
(Pisa-Peccioli). More information on the RIFs and the application 
process is available on www.echord.eu/rif.

About ECHORD++ (The European Coordination Hub for Open Robotics 

The aim of ECHORD++ is to strengthen the knowledge transfer between 
scientific research, industry and users in robotics and to stimulate 
their cooperation. The EU-funded project with a runtime of five years 
(2013 – 2018) funds small-scale research projects called experiments, 
Public end-user Driven Technological Innovation (PDTI) and established 
Robotics Innovation Facilities (RIFs), open labs which provide 
state-of-the-art robotic hardware and software as well as scientific and 
technical support.
