Research Objective 1.What are you looking for? CALL1 – ICT 23 – 2014: ROBOTICS ICT 23.a Research and Innovation Action: R&D Advance robotics abilities + key technologies and their combination Market domains: manufacturing, commercial, civil, agriculture Demonstrate increased TRL (Technology Readiness Level) relevant for the market domains Research results must be validated in real-world setting, demonstrating progress in abilities/technologies RELEVANT to these market domains 100% funding -> Focus on RTD, not innovation From basic research to more applied research (depending on TRL) REFER TO Strategic Research Agenda and Multi-Annual Roadmap* - Detailed definition of Market domains and Technology Combinations - Technology/ability gaps for specific applications –> need for TRL steps *This roadmap is publicly available on the euRobotics AISBL website; its content results from continuous consultation of the whole European robotics community. The prioritisation of the topics follows a formal procedure established by the euRobotics AISBL, whose membership is open to all European stakeholders in Robotics – http://www.eu-robotics.net/ppp.http://www.eu-robotics.net/ppp
Research Objective 1.What are you looking for? CALL1 – ICT 23 – 2014: ROBOTICS ICT 23.a Research and Innovation Actions: HORIZONTAL SUPPORT ACTIVITIES System development processes, techniques and technologies applicable across markets Shared resources and assessment Sharing of resources (including Hardware / Software) Mechanisms for sharing ( incl. sharing of HW and engineering support for developing demonstrators ) Harmonisation of system design practice Definition of standards High quality validation, maintenance and documentation (Optimise re-use) Performance evaluation and benchmarking OBJECTIVES Optimise quality, efficiency, sharing and re-use of results Demonstrate and support continuous progress
Research Objective 1.What are you looking for? CALL1 – ICT 23 – 2014: ROBOTICS ICT 23.b INNOVATION ACTIONS: Technology transfer – Robotics use cases Proposals focusing on transferring latest research results from the lab to the industry/users the expertise covering the complete lifecycle must be present in proposal (from research to integration to users). concrete plan to reach impact carefully explained business case made user driven proposals and not technology push
Research Objective 1.What are you looking for? CALL1 – ICT 23 – 2014: ROBOTICS ICT 23.c INNOVATION ACTIONS: Pre-Commercial procurement in robotics Application Areas: Public safety, environment and infrastructure monitoring Gathering public procurers with common needs One large project (up to 5m€) including 2 major components -R efining requirements; organizing the selection of suppliers and evaluation of progress -RTD work to be procured Frequently Asked Questions on PCP: http://cordis.europa.eu/fp7/ict/pcp/faq_en.html
Research Objective 1.What are you looking for? CALL2 – ICT 24 – 2015: Robotics ICT 24.a R&I Actions to advance key technologies relevant for industrial and service robotics Idem ICT 23.a but in Market domains: healthcare, consumer, transport ICT 24.b Innovation Actions: Technology transfer – Industry-Academia cross-fertilisation 1 or 2 Large project (s) may include open calls for small scale Industry-Academia experiments with industrial platforms Share infrastructure, define joint industrially relevant scenarios, cluster activities
Research Objective 1.What are you looking for? CALL2 – ICT 24 – 2015: Robotics ICT 24.c Innovation Actions: Technology transfer – Robotics use cases Idem 23.b ICT 24.d Pre-Commercial procurement in robotics Application Area: Healthcare ICT 24.e Coordination Actions: Community building and Robotic competitions Supporting the European robotics community: -Networking, education, outreach, public awareness, technology watch, standardisation, and industry-academia collaboration, links to national programmes and initiatives. -Ethical, legal, societal and economical aspects International cooperation Coordinating on the next generation of cognitive systems and robotics Robotic Competitions: towards smarter robots.

OVERVIEW
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: SMART@FIRE 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 (SMART@FIRE 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) 3. Current project portfolio http://cordis.europa.eu/fp7/ict/robotics/
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? 1.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 These documents are publicly available on the euRobotics AISBL website; the roadmap content results from continuous consultation of the whole European robotics community: http://www.eu-robotics.net/ppp.
