ESMERA looks for industrial end-user challenges

ESMERA invites you to share with us real-life problems in which you would like to introduce a robotics solution. Eight of these challenges will be included in an open call in September 2019, to which SMEs all over Europe will apply to solve them. Send us your industrial end-user challenge now!

If you work in Energy, Manufacturing, Agri-Food, Construction or in a different sector and you would like to solve one of your current challenges by a robotics solution – please send us your challenge until April, 30th 2019 to or to Esra Icer:

Background Information

Within the European Commission´s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme ESMERA (European SMEs Robotics Applications) aims to boost robotics innovation by European Small and Medium sizes Enterprises (SMEs).

In the context of ESMERA, small-scale research projects, so-called experiments, will be conducted. Industrial end-users pose concrete challenges in their area and SMEs developing robotics technologies apply to provide the respective solution. The challenge winners will receive direct financial support through a cascade funding mechanism of up to 200.000 euros each. Also, the ESMERA consortium provides technical support, access to robotics facilities and mentoring.

ESMERA First Open Call in 2018

In 2018, the first Open Call of ESMERA was also looking for challenges from industrial end-users. Experiments have now been chosen to start their robotics development process. If you are interested in the Open Call 2018 or would like to get inspiration by our former challenges, you can find information here.

We are looking forward to your challenge. For any question or consultation on whether your challenge fits to ESMERA, please get back to us:
