Welcome

ESMERA Second Open Call: Now Open!

Are you developing robotics solutions? Would you like to get funding for it? Then apply to ESMERA!

Within the Open Call, industrial end users have defined specific challenges that are to be solved by introducing a robotics solution. The challenges come from the areas of Manufacturing, Energy, Construction, Agri-Food, Retail, Healthcare and Emergency Response. Until December 2nd, European SMEs can now apply to solve one or more of these challenges by developing a robotics application and receive funding of up to 200.000 Euros.

ESMERA experiment MANDEYE at Robotics Hackathon
10 teams competed during the European Robotics Hackathon Enrich 2019. Right in the middle of them: MANDALA with their robotics experiment MANDEYE. MANDEYE participates in the European project ESMERA and is funded as one of the winners of the first open call.
Two more days for handing in your challenge
Hand in your challenge – and have it solved by a robotics solution. That is the ESMERA promise. The ESMERA consortium is now looking for these industrial end-user challenges. Applications are accepted only until June 15th. You can apply using opencalls@esmera-project.eu.
ESMERA is looking for external evaluators
Within ESMERA, a number of proposals are submitted by potential applicants. To guarantee a neutral evaluation of these proposals, they are evaluated by a team of independent, external experts. We would like to invite you to register as an independent evaluator for the ESMERA second Open Call.
ESMERA Experiments start Development Phase
In the context of ESMERA, twelve experiments have now started to solve industry challenges by developing new robotics solutions. The ESMERA consortium has chosen the best twelve experiments from 32 proposals that were handed in during the first Open Call.
