AeRoTwin is an EU H2020 Twinning project coordinated by the Laboratory for Robotics and Intelligent Control Systems - LARICS from the University of Zagreb Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing (UNIZG-FER).

The overarching goal of AeRoTwin is to decrease networking gaps and deficiencies between UNIZG-FER and internationally leading counterparts in EU, by significantly enhancing the S&T capacity of LARICS at UNIZG-FER in the field of aerial robotics. Through carefully planned twinning actions, AeRoTwin will raise the UNIZG-FER research profile, as well as the research profile of its personnel.

UNIZG‐FER will through AeRoTwin enhance its networking capacity and scientific visibility; improve the quality of innovation management and technology transfer; and also increase its research excellence and innovation capacity in the field of aerial robotics, in the following Strategic Research Domains (SRDs):

  1. Cooperative robotic missions
  2. Aerial robot navigation
  3. Aerial robot configurability

 

 

Partners:

  1. University of Seville (USE), Spain
  2. Imperial College London, UK
  3. Technological Corporation of Andalusia, Spain

AeRoTwin Kick-Off Meeting

The Kick-off meeting of our new project, AeRoTwin, was held on September 26th, 2018 in Zagreb, at our Faculty. The meeting was attended by our Lab members, partners working on the project from the University of Seville, Imperial College London and the Technological Coropration of Andalusia, as well as a member of the Advisory Board - there was a lot to talk about!

All of the attendees introduced themselves and briefly described what they will be doing as part of the project, and other topics discussed included the dates of future meetings and other planned activities. The meeting was a great success, which is a great sign for the future of the project! Take a look at the gallery from the meeting by folowing this link.
