25 Great Robot Ideas Make the Final Cut
25 European companies have attained the last of the "golden tickets" to ROBOTT-NET's Voucher Program. A total of 64 vouchers are now in process to receive highly specialized consultancy from a broad field of the brightest robotics experts around Europe. The hope is to make their ideas come to life.
- The main issue being addressed by ROBOTT-NET is getting promising new technologies over the "valley of death". Many excellent ideas get partially developed but never make it onto the market, despite having good commercial potential. ROBOTT-NET tackles some of the causes of new ideas and technologies getting stuck, says Team Manager Jacob Kortbek from the Danish Technological Institute.
A total of 166 companies spread across 12 European countries have applied for a voucher entitling them to assistance from the European robotic technology transfer network.
All types of companies including start-ups, SMEs, large companies and institutions were able to apply for a voucher.
The winners of the second and final round have now been appointed. These last 25 companies will join the 39 appointed from the first round to receive help to develop their robotic solutions and/or business plans.
- ROBOTT-NET directly supports the development of 64 new robotic technologies or systems. For new products, we provide business case analysis, digital skills training, individual roadmaps for their path to market. For new robotic automation, we provide designs, business case analysis, and mock-ups, says Business Development Manager Sergio Bandinelli from Tecnalia Ventures.
The candidates went through a selection process in which their applications were evaluated by the Danish Technological Institute (DTI) from Denmark, Fraunhofer IPA from Germany, the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) from the UK and Tecnalia from Spain.
From the set of the 64 winning vouchers, eight companies will later be selected for further assistance and funding toward a pilot project.
Strengthening the European manufacturing industry
One of the important aims in ROBOTT-NET is to strengthen the technology transfer between the participating research and technology organizations (RTOs) and the European manufacturing industry. To realize this technology transfer, all partners in ROBOTT-NET will run general courses for industry management as a complementary activity to voucher and pilot work systems.
This will benefit participants to take strategic decisions and investments in technologies.
