European Academy for Marine and Underwater Robotics

Objective

"The Robocademy ITN will establish a European training and research network to develop key skills and enabling technologies in underwater robotics for the scientific and economic exploration of the oceans
(e.g. offshore oilfield of the future). Through the close collaboration of leading research institutes,
academia, industry, and SMEs in robotics, marine technology, marine science, and offshore industry, Robocademy will provide first-class training and research opportunities for ESRs. In well-defined and
well-tutored PhD research projects, the Robocademy fellows will push the state-of-the-art in the area of robust, reliable and autonomous underwater robots. Specialized scientific training modules will enable
the fellows to obtain both a sound basis in robotics and an introduction to topics that are specific to their research areas. This will be complemented by a high-quality soft-skills training programme for
and the opportunity to gain extensive on-site hands-on experience through secondments to maritime industry and oceanographic research institutes.
Thus Robocademy will foster the formation of young professionals that are able to meet the urgent demand for highly-qualified researchers and engineers in the growing field of underwater systems and robotics. For the European industry and scientific community, such specialists are crucial gain ground against competitors from North America and Asia. For the ESRs, the Robocademy training will open up excellent career opportunities in both academia and industry."
