project overview

Robotics technology influences every aspect of work and home.

Robotics has the potential to positively transform lives and work practices, raise efficiency and safety levels and provide enhanced levels of service.


Robotics4EU is a 3-year-long project funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, which aims to ensure a more widespread adoption of (AI-based) robots in healthcare, inspection and maintenance of infrastructure, agri-food, and agile production.

inspection and maintenance of infrastructure
agile production
how can we ensure a more widespread adoption of (AI-based) robots?
Through the implementation of responsible robotics principles among the robotics community that results in societal acceptance of the robotics solutions in each application area.
Robotics4EU will create and empower the EU-wide responsible robotics community representing robotics innovators from companies and academia in the four application areas, as well as citizens/ users and policy/ decision makers by:

raising awareness about non-technological aspects of robotics by organising community building and co-creation events bringing together the robotics community and citizens;

advocating for the responsible robotics among all stakeholders’ groups;

developing a responsible robotics maturity assessment model and bringing the project results to the standardization bodies.

Boosting Wider Adoption of Robotics in Europe

To reduce the barriers that prevent a more widespread adoption of robots, non-technological challenges related to legal, ethical and societal aspects need to be addressed and thus, the Robotics4EU will implement the following set of activities:
