Robotics Coordination Action for Europe Two

RockEU2 is a robotics coordination action funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.

It continues and intensifies the work of the FP7 coordination action RockEU which was instrumental in building a strong European robotics community, leading to the creation of euRobotics aisbl, the private partner of the SPARC public-private partnership, and resulting in the development of the Strategic Research Agenda and the Multi-Annual Roadmap for European robotics R&D&I. A key part of the project targets outreach to the cognitive science community to improve the deployment of cognitive capabilities in robots, leading to more innovative products and applications.
