Research Objective
2. Is this new or has it been called before?
eg. How is it new / different
from previous calls
ICT 23.a/ICT 24.a: While the robotics technologies and abilities that still are to be
advanced are not very different from the previous research efforts, they now have
to be advanced in the context of some market domains prioritized in the call and
progress have to be demonstrated in real-life setup relevant for these market
ICT 23.b/ICT 24.c: use-cases – similar to CALL10 – but relatively recent – proposers
must understand the focus on technology transfer as opposed to R&D
ICT 23.c/ICT 24.d: PcP in Monitoring and safety
– first time called in robotics
– a concept of PcP (PcP Pilot) exists in ECHORD++
– relevant projects: [email protected] http://www.smartatfire.eu/, SILVER http://www.silverpcp.eu/
ICT CT 24.d: Technology transfer - Industry-academia cross-fertilisation
– similar to ECHORD http://www.echord.info/ and ECHORD ++, however, with a different
administrative mechanism - possibility to include third parties as opposed to add
partners)
Research Objective
2. Is this new or has it been called before?
Are there any ongoing projects that are serving as a “bridge” between FP7 and H2020
-
Yes, the use cases called in ICT-10 robotics started an initiative to foster technology
transfer
PcP concept has been tested in other areas but also relevant for robotics ([email protected]
http://www.smartatfire.eu/, SILVER http://www.silverpcp.eu/)
-
ECHORD++ (http://www.echord.info/)and EUROC (European Robotics Challenges) propose a
shared infrastructure (transition to ICT 23.a – shared resources)
-
BRICS (http://www.best-of-robotics.org/) proposed a support activity "BEST PRACTICE IN
ROBOTICS": structure and formalize the robot development, provide tools, models, and
functional libraries.
-
ECHORD ++: includes PcP pilots (transition to ICT 23.c / ICT 24.d)

Research Objective
4. What do you NOT want?
- ICT 23 a)/ICT 24 a) Research not connected to the
prioritised market domains
-
ICT 23 b) & ICT 24 c)
-
Major research components in the tech transfer projects
-
Use cases without users: Pure technology push use cases
Research Objective - Key actors
5. Who are the leading players?
The European Robotics PPP, represented by the euRobotics AISBL
- http://www.eu-robotics.net/ppp
- involves major stakeholders
- open: strongly encourage participation of robotics stakeholders
Note that the PPP is not exhaustive and end users are typically not highly represented
System integrators are not present either
Public body/ procurers for the PcP not (yet) in the PPP
- the PPP partners are not favored in the selection process
6. Is there a key group of actors or ETP driving this?
European Robotics PPP - http://www.eu-robotics.net/ppp .
Research Objective
7. Are there any additional / background documents?

Q&A document will be posted in due time
Current url: http://cordis.europa.eu/fp7/ict/robotics/
2.
Essential reading for proposers, providing detailed definitions of
technologies and abilities and illustrative examples of the selected
priorities.

Strategic research agenda from the European Robotics PPP

Multi Annual Roadmap from the European Robotics PPP
