ESMERA Experiments
First Open Call, starting in August 2018

Within the first Open Call of ESMERA, the following experiments have been chosen to develop robotics solutions to specific challenges. They are currently in their development phase and strive towards their path towards industrialising their products.

These 12 experiments are being funded:

The selection of experiments will be carried out in two competitive phases:
Phase I: 12 selected experiments compete against each other to develop their proof-of-concept (9 months)
Phase II: the winners continue to Phase II for another 9 months to bring their technology even closer to the market.

The following document explains the guidelines of how experiments proceed from Phase I to II:
