The EU is co-funding 21 new projects in robotics totalling € 98.7 million spread over 2-5 years.

Many of the projects focus on industrial and service robotics — or medical robotics — and their potential for translation. Additional highlights include robots for gardening or asbestos removal, drone inspection, and entertainment robots.

A full list of proposals funded can be found here — many of these projects will be presented at the European Robotics Forum in Ljubljana, Slovenia this March. Their names and acronyms should give hint of the areas of focus:

AEROBI: AErial RObotic System for In-Depth Bridge Inspection by Contact
