The 2nd European Robotics Week will be from 26 November to 2 December 2012 and offers one week of various robotics related activities across Europe for the general public, highlighting growing importance of robotics in a wide variety of application areas. The Week aims at inspiring students of all ages to pursue careers in STEM-related fields, i.e. science, technology, engineering and math.

Events are organised locally by scientists, labs, teachers, schools, robotics engineers, robot makers etc.., but centrally listed and co-promoted by European Robotics Coordination Action (euRobotics) an EU project supported by the Seventh Framework Programme of the Information and Communication Technology.

The first European Robotics Week was held from November 28 to December 4, 2011.  More than 130 organisations (companies, universities, research institutes) in 19 European countries organised over 360 robotics related activities. About 80,000 people have been reached across Europe, many of them high school students and elementary school pupils.
