Welcome

The ESMERA-FOCE Results have been published

You can find the Public Evaluation Report for ESMERA FOCE here.

To apply for the redress, the coordinator of the proposal should send an email to our Project Coordinator makris@lms.mech.upatras.gr, putting opencalls@esmera-project.eu address in CC. This file describes the redress procedure in greater detail.

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!
ESMERA at ERF 2019 in Bucharest
ESMERA participates in the European Robotics Forum 2019 in Bucharest, Romania. ESMERA provides the tools for robotics development in Europe: funding and expert support. During the ERF from March, 20th to 22nd, ESMERA will be present with booth no. 30 in the exhibition area.
Interview: Mark Gaddes from Network Rail
Network Rail is one of the challenge providers in the ESMERA First Open Call. The call is closed and experiments are at the starting point of developing robotics solutions. We talked to Mark Gaddes from Network Rail´s R&D Group about his expectations, experiences and advise for future challenge givers.
Being in a European Project
At ICT 2018 in Vienna, the ESMERA workshop „EU Robotics Applications: From scattered to networked“ discussed advantages of being part of a EU Robotics network. Also, difficulties were considered and it was argued what an SME might need and lack most. How can European projects help develop SMEs and help SMEs develop robotics?
ESMERA Workshop reveals Insights
The ESMERA workshop „EU Robotics Applications: From Scattered to Networked“ at ICT 2018 in Vienna turned out to be an interactive session strongly involving the audience in the workshop´s discussion about benefits, needs and experiences in being part of a EU Robotics network.
ESMERA Workshop at ICT 2018 in Vienna
The ESMERA EU Project Consortium invites you to its workshop „EU Robotics Applications: From scattered to networked” at ICT 2018 in Vienna. The workshop will take place on Tuesday, December 4th, 5 p.m. – 5.45 p.m. in Hall L8. It establishes a dialogue between EU research and SMEs.
First Open Call is closed
The first Open Call for ESMERA has been closed on Friday, November 9th. The projects thanks all participants that handed in final proposals. ESMERA looks for robotics solutions in Manufacturing, Energy, Construction and Agri-Food. The best proposals receive funding of up to 200.000 euros.
Watch more: The ESMERA Video
Are you interested in robotics development? Watch the new ESMERA Explainer Video and get an idea of what the EU funded project can offer and deliver. ESMERA is still looking for SMEs developing robotics solutions in Manufacturing, Energy, Agri-Food and Construction.
Application Deadline Extended
The Call for Experiments in the ESMERA project has been extended until November 9th, 6 p.m. CET. SMEs developing robotic technologies can still apply for providing solutions to predefined challenges from Energy, Manufacturing, Construction and Agri-Food.
Deadline for Proposals approaching
Up to 200.000 Euros of funding as well as development and business support from reknown partners – the first Open Call for the ESMERA project is still open for SMEs developing robotics technologies. The application deadline on October, 31st is approaching, however.
