The fourth annual EU Robotics Week is on across Europe, with more than 300 activities happening this week in 25 EU countries.
Industry, research institutes and universities all over Europe will be offering a host of robotics activities for all ages – from open lab visits, public exhibitions, challenges and competitions, school visits and guided tours – in order to build public awareness and interest in robotics across the EU.
Highlights of this year’s events include:
Czech Republic – Café Neu Romance: “Golem & the Mechanical Man of the Future” – Meet some of the World’s best LEGO MINDSTORMS experts and robotics artist headliner Fernando Orellana from El Salvador, Slovakian AI-professor Jozef Kelemen, Dr. Rupert Young and the “bionic robotics arm man” Nigel Ackland, both from the UK.
