On the 18th December this year, a match-making brokerage day for the robotic community is taking place in Brussels, Belgium. Representatives from the European Commission and euRobotics will provide participants with all the information needed to participate in the upcoming calls for proposals. The focus will be on ICT-09-2019-2020: robotics in application areas and ICT-10-2019-2020: Robotics core technology; Both of the calls have their deadline on 28th March 2019. EuRobotics will provide information on newly selected Digital Innovation Hubs, and the proposers will have the possibility to present their expertise and project ideas to the audience.
The registration is mandatory, free of charge and will close on 12th December 2018. Further information is available on https://ec.europa.eu/digital-single-market/en/news/robotics-upcoming-horizon-2020-calls-information-and-brokerage-day.
XoSoft results were presented to relevant stakeholders in the field of wearable robots during the International Symposium on Wearable Robotics (WeRob 2018) in Pisa, Italy. Researchers and innovators from all around the world discussed novel approaches, challenges and potential solutions in technologies for wearable robots.
XoSoft also co-organised a special session, WeR2. Soft Wearable Robots which brought together multiple experts from the field of soft wearable robots present and discuss their results in this innovative research field.
Sam Schülein from our partner GCE held a poster on the "First Functional Testing Results of a New Soft Modular Biomimetic Lower-Limb Exoskeleton (XoSoft) in Geriatric Patients with Moderate Gait Disorders" during the 14th International Congress of the European Geriatric Medicine (EuGMS) from 10.-12. October 2018 in Berlin.
The International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems, IROS 2018 was held at the beginning of October 2018 and XoSoft Partners from IIT were on site to demonstrate the XoSoft prototypes and to present the development of the prototypes over the course of the project. Some impressions of our live demonstrations are shown below.
From the 26.-29. August 2018 our partner RRD presented XoSoft during the BioRob Conference in Enschede, NL.
XoSoft was invited to present the XoSoft project as a sponsor during GNB 2018 from the 25th to the 27th of June in Milano, Italy. The 3-day event was the Sixth National Congress of Bioengineering organised by the Politecnico di Milano.
