LIFEBOTS Exchange - creating a new reality of care and welfare through the inclusion of social robots.

Project description

Shedding light on the value of social robots in healthcare

The interest in and demand for social robots, designed to interact with people and other robots, is growing. These robots can be used to meet the challenges faced in the healthcare sector, such as assisting with the long-term care of an ageing population. They can also provide patients with improved quality of life. To elucidate the impact of introducing social robots in care, the EU-funded LIFEBOTS Exchange project is working towards enhancing cross-sector, international and interdisciplinary collaborations in the field. To that end, it is proposing a knowledge hub for social robotics that will help increase the competencies of those working in the health field and assist in the creation of a tri-sectoral network comprising academia, industry and technology users.
