The next call (4th call) is due September 15th, 2023.
In 2024 the following calls will due: April 26th, 2024 & September 13th, 2024.
There is no specific focus area of the calls starting in 2023. You can focus on any aspect of robotics in your application and ideally be connected with the themes of the workshops we run. The most important thing is that you are thinking about radical innovation, new solutions, new end-uses, new business models, and addressing contemporary global issues. We invite you to participate to our challenge workshops and submit proposals addressing challenges generated during the workshops.
You can submit an application related to technological innovation as well as a conceptual innovation.
What do we mean by technological and conceptual innovation? Let us take an example from the drone industry. For example, you can provide an idea of a new autonomous drone with a new technology that has not been invented before. However, you can also provide an idea to assess a concept – a certain end-use of drone in a certain setting and promoting the use of drones in an unconventional and radical way.
