Security and space robotics deal, in many cases, with technologies with a low maturity level and with constraining operational regulations. Participating in this workshop can be useful to get an overview of the initiatives and projects that try to face the challenges in these domains. Another good reason to participate is the possibility of making the mutual acquaintance of people involved in the Space & Security initiatives, useful for possible future common initiatives (e.g. FP7-Horizon 2020 project proposals).

The workshop will consist of a series of presentations about new mission concepts and application-enabling technologies, given by robotics experts directly involved in research and innovation.

The main aims of this workshop are the following: to share viewpoints about the goals of the robotic devices that work in these contexts; to verify the applicability of discussed technological solutions to real-world missions; to collect experiences and study cases from existing applications or on-going projects.


11:00 - 11:05

The European Robotics Forum, organized by the European robotic networks EURON, EUROP, the euRobotics Coordination Action and hosted by The Danish Technological Institute, is in the field of robotics the meeting point for engineers, scientists and business people from all over Europe. The event will take place from 5-7 March 2012 in Odense, Denmark. 

More than 300 robotics researchers from industry and academia, as well as entrepreneurs and public investors, are expected to discuss the latest developments, research challenges and business opportunities for European robotics. 
This year's theme of the European Robotics Forum is "European Robotics towards new horizons".
