LOGO-EUROBOTICS-ANNYVERSARY

Founded in September 2012, euRobotics was created to fulfil the private side of SPARC, a public-private partnership (PPP) with the European Commission under Horizon 2020. However, this was no ‘big bang’ moment. The universe in which the new association began its life already existed in the form of two entities, the EURON network representing the European robotics research sector since 2000 and EUROP, the European Robotics Technology Platform, representing Europe’s industrial sector since 2004.
