Robotix Academy

The aim of the INTERREG project is to establish the "Robotix Academy" as a permanent research cluster for industrial robotics in the Greater Region. It serves as a cooperation platform between the participating universities and research institutions, transfer partners, user and supplier companies.

The project thus makes a significant contribution to promoting the competitiveness of the Greater Region and increasing the innovation capacities of its economic players.

A key technology is demand-oriented automation, e.g. through industrial robots as well as assistance systems and human-robot cooperation. This poses major technical and financial challenges for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in particular.

The target groups of the project range from pupils to students and skilled workers to excellent researchers. The focus of the Academy is on the development of know-how and the introduction of new technologies as well as on consulting, qualification and research services, especially for SMEs.

The advantage of the joint Robotix Academy lies in the broad coverage of innovative topics in the field of industrial robotics: synergies are created, resources and competencies are bundled and research results are exchanged.

Each higher education institution takes on a thematic focus of industrial robotics and establishes a local research base. In this way, each region focuses on its core competencies (leaders), expands these further and learns in other subject areas (followers) through the exchange in the Academy.
