Do you have a team with the skills it takes to create innovative technologies, enabling robots by developing new capabilities? Or do you run a production which you want to optimize by introducing novel robotic solutions, which you cannot just buy off-the-shelf? Both small, medium and large companies, as well as universities, are eligible for vouchers.
Shape your idea and collect information about the task it will address. What makes your idea great? Which parts of it makes it stand out when compared to existing solutions with similar capabilities?
On robot-net.eu/voucher you can create a user and download the application template. To apply for a voucher, you need to fill in your legal information in the online form: name, address, etc. Then you have to Download the application template. Explain about your idea, the current state and indicate in which areas you need assistance. Upload the filled in template. Optionally, you are allowed to also upload a short slide-presentation pitch and/or a short video-clip showcasing your idea, current state and introducing your team. You can then submit your application for evaluation, and will receive a confirmation e-mail.
When all applications have been evaluated, those that are granted will be in direct contact with ROBOTT-NET, to plan the details of how the expert assistance is best provided. At the end of the voucher work, with our help, your initial idea should be matured, tested and proven to an extent that makes it viable for implementation as an actual pilot case.
With the concept verified, the voucher work results outline opportunities and potential risks related to implementation as a pilot case. All completed vouchers can then apply to become one of eight ROBOTT-NET pilot cases in the next stage of the project. The pilot cases not funded in ROBOTT-NET will still have a strong case to present to investors, national funding programs or company management, to secure the means required for a pilot.
