The first Open Call for ESMERA has been closed
We thank you for your proposals and ask for some patience. You will be informed about whether your proposal has been accepted for Phase I as soon as possible.
ESMERA offers eight industrial challenges addressing real-life problems in four challenge areas: Energy, Manufacturing, Construction and Agri-food. Under these areas, multiple sectors such as Gas & Oil, Nuclear, Assembly, Processing, Agriculture, Food Processing, Buildings and Infrastructure will be considered. The focus will be on applications that cannot be served by existing robotics solutions and thus are not provided by integrators or technology providers at the moment. The challenges will be selected to be open to innovation, meaning that they will allow multiple approaches to be used by the SMEs who will be free to explore new directions in developing robotics technologies. You can find the challenges here.
