Innorobo 2017 launches “Call for Robotics Innovation”
Europe’s leading robotics forum promotes societal impact, inspired by the Millennium Project and Nesta frameworks.
The 2017 edition of Innorobo, Europe’s leading summit of the global robotics ecosystem, is launching its new “Call for Robotics Innovation”, which aims to promote advances in robotics technology that make a concrete contribution to sustainable humankind. This new competition is inspired by and based on the principles of the Millennium Project and the Nesta Standards of Evidence, two non-profit initiatives that share Innorobo’s philosophy of fostering innovation that generates not only economic value, but also benefits society by addressing today’s key global challenges head-on.
“We are convinced that any economic player can develop great business, make healthy profits and at the same time, do good for the world, thus creating a more sustainable world through international business development,” explains Catherine Simon, Innorobo’s founder and CEO.“This applies particularly well to robotics, a General Purpose Technology that offers nearly unprecedented power to transform our society in beneficial ways.”
Organizations of all types and sizes wishing to take part in the Call for Robotics Innovations can apply between 15 December 2016 and 17 February 2017 at midnight.
Innorobo takes place in Paris, France from Tuesday 16 trough Thursday May 18, 2017, at Les Docks de Paris.
