The European Robotics Week 2017 (ERW2017) Central Event organised in Brussels saw the “Robots Discovery” exhibition hosted by the European Committee of the Regions on 20-23 November, where robotics experts from 30 European and regionally-funded projects outlined the impact of their work on society.

The exhibiting projects showed robots assisting during surgery or providing support for elderly care, how robots can help students develop digital skills, monitor the environment and apply agricultural chemicals with precision and less waste or how they can save lives after disasters. The #ERW2017 hashtag has reached over 1 million impressions on social media. Here’s a look at how the “Robots Discovery” central event was portrayed.

Day 1, 20 November – exhibition of robotics projects for healthcare

Day 2, 21 November – exhibition of education robotics projects

The robot bus of the Sohjoa Baltic project has arrived to the European Committee of the Regions.

The day ended with a reception hosted by First Vice-President of the European Committee of the Regions, Markku Markkula, and a concert by the Logos Robots Orchestra.

Day 3, 22 November – exhibition of robotics projects related to the environment

The Sohjoa Baltic robot bus met the public on the Esplanade of the European Parliament.

The day ended with a high-level dinner hosted by MEP Martina Werner at the European Parliament.
