Uwe HAASS, Consultant, Germany
It is important that Europe is not falling apart into those regions which have high tech industries, high employment and wealth, and those with mostly manual labour, low wages, and high unemployment. Hence we need a strategy to develop a successful robotics industry at the periphery of Europe as well. It is important that regional competencies are kept and integrated into robotics. This workshop is to present robotics activities in the Western Balkans and discuss how results will contribute to the Roadmap of European Robotics.
