'Research in action', Dublin, Ireland
An exhibition entitled 'Research in action' will take place from 9 to 20 July 2012 in Dublin, Ireland.
Once relegated to science-fiction movies and automobile assembly lines, robots will handle more complex tasks in various industries, including health care and agriculture, according to those who spoke about the future of robotics.
Hosted by the European Commission, the exhibit will provide an insight into how robots can assist in daily life. The showcase will highlight a cross-section of research, presenting demonstrations from a range of subject areas. Attendees will be able to take part in the Sugar Molecules Contest, see a demonstration of a brand new wave energy convertor as well as assess their risk of type 2 diabetes and find out more about a coral reef discovered off the west coast of Ireland.For further information, please visit: http://ec.europa.eu/ireland/events/recent_events/index1_en.htm#19
