THE GATEWAY TO EUROPEAN ROBOTICS DIGITAL INNOVATION HUBS
Robotics technologies are essential to shape the EU’s development and future and to push its digitalization. They boost productivity, growth and competitiveness while addressing societal challenges like health and security.
RI4EU aims to accelerate innovation in robotics technologies in four priority application areas that are considered important for existing and emerging market segments with a potential of further robotization: agile production, infrastructure inspection, and maintenance, healthcare, and agri-food.
WHAT DO WE DO?
- Promote EU robotics projects services
- Promote upcoming open calls and info sessions
- Represent projects at joint events and workshops
- Share success stories and good practices
- Support synergies between projects
- Share relevant industry trends
- Address sustainability efforts through communication
RI4EU mission is to support and spread robotics technologies in the EU by providing dedicated services and expertise, funding, networking, visibility, and access to market to robotics innovations and bringing robotics technologies to the attention of technology adopters, allowing companies to find innovative products and services tailored to their needs.
Featured innovation actions
We currently represent five innovation actions from four application areas, but we are open for new application areas and growth.
RIMA focuses on the inspection and maintenance of complex infrastructure, pipelines, power generation plants and water networks and more. It brings technology and service providers, the asset owners and operators, together with Digital Innovation Hubs and facilitators to accelerate robotics deployment and uptake in inspection and maintenance tasks.Read more
