The European Robotics Public Private Partnership (PPP) is the teaming up of the robotics industry, research, academia and the European Commission to launch a joint research, development and innovation programme in order to strengthen the position of European robotics as a whole. The programme will be jointly developed by the private side (robotics manufacturers, component manufacturers, systems integrators, end users, research institutes, universities) and the public side (the European Commission).
It will aim at:
euRobotics AISBL - The Private Side of Robotics PPP
euRobotics AISBL is a Brussels based international non-profit association for all stakeholders in European robotics. euRobotics builds upon the success of the European Robotics Technology Platform ( EUROP ) and the academic network of EURON , and will not only continue the cooperation, but will also strengthen the bond between its industrial and academic members, thus leading towards the establishment of only one sustainable organisation for the European robotics community as a whole.
One of the association’s main missions is to collaborate with the European Commission (EC) to develop and implement a strategy and a roadmap for research, technological development and innovation in robotics, in view of the launch of the next framework program Horizon 2020. Towards this end, euRobotics AISBL was formed to engage from the private side in a contractual Public-Private Partnership with the European Union as the public side."
euRobotics AISBL was established on 17 September 2012 by 35 founding members from robotics industry and research. On 18 Sep. 2012, representatives of euRobotics AISBL and Neelie Kroes, Vice-President of the European Commission and responsible for the Digital Agenda, signed a Memorandum of Understanding. In this MoU the parties express their commitment for the preparation of a PPP in Robotics and strengthening the European competitiveness in the quickly growing robotics sector.

For the foundation of euRobotics AISBL, two European predecessor organisations in robotics, EUROP (representing the interests of industry) and EURON, an academic network, decided to merge. This visionary process and all questions related to the establishment of the legal entity euRobotics AISBL as the “private” side of the PPP, was supported by the Coordination Action euRobotics (green box) which lasted until 31 December, 2012. On 13 June 2013, euRobotics AISBL submitted to the Commission a position paper including a formal application for the contractual PPP in robotics.
