InTech Attends the European Robotics Forum

April 5, 2016

On March 21, 2016 InTech's Ana Pantar, Senior Commissioning Editor, and Viktorija Zgela, Managing Editor of the International Journal of Advanced Robotic Systems, traveled to Ljubljana for the European Robotics Forum. Quite possibly the most important event in the field of robotics to take place in Europe, the forum is attended by over 700 European robotics experts. With the use of robots in industry leading to improvement in quality of products and working conditions, minimizing resources and waste, and saving costs, robotics and robotics innovation and investment are proving to have a tremendous impact on not only our economies, but societies as well.

InTech's Ms. Pantar and Ms. Zgela went to the European Robotics Forum to not only see what was trending in the fields of robotics but to meet with participants of recently completed FP7 projects. The European Commission recently confirmed InTech's compliance for FP7 post-grant OA pilot funding criteria, and they went to see what our fellow FP7 researchers were up to.

They had the privilege of meeting many of our collaborators, editors and authors, and made some new acquaintances. We look forward to continuing our work in robotics and learning more about this growing industry.
