Project name: Twinning coordination action for spreading excellence in Aerial Robotics
Project acronym: AeRoTwin
Dates: 01.09.2018 - 28.02.2022
Total budget: 997,897.50 EUR
Funding: EU Horizon 2020, CSA - Coordination and support action
Grant Agreement number: 810321

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

LARICS is the coordinator of a new project: Twinning coordination action for spreading excellence in Aerial Robotics - AeRoTwin, part of the H2020 Twinning programme. AeRoTwin is a coordinated twinning action aiming to spread excellence in aerial robotics. The partners on this project are the Imperial College of London, the University of Seville and the Technological Corporation of Andalusia.

The project's net worth is almost 7 and a half million HRK (almost €1 million). The project starts September 1st, 2018.

Project coordinators prof. Stjepan Bogdan, PhD and Ivana Mikolić, mag. ing. pointed this out:

"AeRoTwin is the first H2020 project to be coordinated by LARICS. It is the crown of our 10 years of research in the field of robotics and unmanned aerial vehicles," prof. Stjepan Bogdan explained.

"This project will offer LARICS, and by extent also the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, the chance to take part in European research and to be on equal footing with other leading international institutions in the EU. The project will increase the scientific and research capacities of the Laboratory through its many education and training activities," Ivana Mikolić said.
