We have just reached the end of a really excellent period in the history of the European Robotics Week and one which has highlighted the growing prominence of Robotics in Europe. We received many registrations, which resulted in 475 events being held around Europe. Many of these events were in countries where Robotics Week was being held for the first time, such as Croatia and Israel.
If you would like to read more, here is the link to the latest press release: http://www.eu-robotics.net/cms/upload//ERW_2014_-_Press_Release_28_Nov.pdf
A report on the whole week will follow in the very near future, once I am able to compile the following information from you all:
I would like to kindly ask you to send me the figures of the number of participants attending to all the events in your country. This will then be used to get an idea on how we are progressing and the level of interest that people take in robotics in comparison to previous years.
It would also be great to have some quotes from you, from children, parents, teachers and the organisers of the events to include on our final press release/report.
Finally, I would also appreciate if you could kindly send me some photos and videos.
You can also submit the photos and videos by flickr and youtube:
Please include the name of the activity, ERW2013, city and country, as well as the credits for the photos/videos (e.g. “Robots are exciting” – ERW2013 – Vienna, Austria – Credits: Gregor … ) “
Again, thank you so much for all your engagement and commitment on making the European Robotics Week a success and showing the general public how robotics is progressing in Europe.
Look forward to hearing from you all.
