Chairman's Report

Dear EUnited Robotics members,
Dear readers,



We concluded our very first European Robotics Summit (March 3-4, 2015) with great success.  We were particularly grateful for the opportunity to gain an insight into the views of Silicon Valley and China - two major global players providing us with added dimension and perspectives that differ from our own. 

I would like to thank all participants and emphasize that your feedbacks, inputs, and the results of the workshops will be compiled and reviewed in order to plan future steps.  We will keep you posted.  I would also like to encourage you to watch two videos about the summit (short and long versions, see article below).  I am sure you will enjoy them.

As a reminder,  please save the following important dates: our next EUnited Robotics Members' Assembly will be on November 26th, 2015.  The EUnited General Assembly as well as the EUnited Dinner Debate will both take place on November 25th, 2015All events will be held in Brussels.  

Enjoy the read.
