(Optics&Photonics)  Robot Union, a recently formed “pan-European” accelerator, backed by €8 million in funds under the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 framework, will focus, over the next three years, on helping startups and small/medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in robotics-related areas to bring innovative technologies to market.
The Robot Union project involves 14 major partner organizations. These include five research-and-technology partners—Finland’s VTT Technical Research Center, TU Delft in the Netherlands, the Danish Technological Institute, Technalia in Spain, and PIAP in Poland—as well as the funding platform Fundingbox and private-equity and VC firms such as Mobile World Capital of Spain, Odense Seed and Venture of Denmark, and Chrysalix in Canada.
