Exoskeleton Technology Day

In Amsterdam, on 28 November 2016, Robo-Mate and 5 other exoskeleton projects present their results, plans and selected prototypes to each other and stakeholders from industry, policy-making and funding bodies. It is most likely the first  gathering of European exoskeleton projects and expertise in a forum like this.

 

Participants from outside the 6 exoskeleton projects will have

  • the opportunity to receive first-hand information on exoskeleton technology,
  • see selected exoskeleton prototypes,
  • engage in networking with representatives from the 6 exoskeleton projects and
  • receive an introduction to EU funding opportunities.

Members of the projects themselves will receive, in addition, training at presenting their project results.
