About European Robotics Week
European Robotics Week has been held annually throughout Europe in the last week of November since 2011. The European research community euRobotics initiated the themed week to educate the public about robotics and to focus on the significance and benefits of automation. A further aim is to highlight the high-quality, innovative research and development work of European institutes, universities and the industrial sector.  Another important goal is to arouse the interest of young people in the sciences. The trend towards automation is continuing worldwide, with the result that ever more specialists will be required in the field of robotics in the future, and particularly in research and development positions.
