An unprecedented partnership has been made between the EuroScience Open Forum 2018 and Fablab festival. ESOF is a major European event for science and innovation, whose 2018 Biennial will be held in Toulouse. In collaboration with Aerospace Valley and ONERA, a seminar has been organized for the professional day of the festival Friday 12 May.

It will bring together researchers and economic actors around the topic of “robot-human” and “robot-robot” relationships. The event will serve as the occasion to learn more about the challenges and advances in their research and innovation, and their relation to society.

3 major European researchers in robotics will give conferences on 12th May morning at the festival :

Alin ALBU-SHÄFFER, DLR, Head of the DLR Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics Allemagne

Kerstin DAUTENHAHN, University of Hertfordshire, UK

Henry de PLINVAL, ONERA, France

followed by a public-participative round table with those sepakers and industrial and public stakeholders. This remarkable event will be accessible on pre-registration on this website soon. Stay tuned !

  1. ESOF 2018 will be an opportunity to discuss the socio-cultural and economic implications and impacts of scientific advances from regional, national, European and global perspectives. This international perspective is particularly significant since, in the face of global challenges and the internationalisation of trade and political governance, science is increasingly considered an international collaborative endeavour; a feature that the sessions should seek to address.
