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):
- Cooperative robotic missions
- Aerial robot navigation
- Aerial robot configurability
- University of Seville (USE), Spain
- Imperial College London, UK
- Technological Corporation of Andalusia, Spain
On 12 March 2020, the review meeting of the first 15 months of the project implementation period (01/09/2018 - 30/11/2019) of project AeRoTwin was held online via WebEx due to special circumstances (COVID-19). The purpose of the meeting was to familiarize the project officer and the EC reviewer with the project activities and achievements accomplished in the relevant period.
Along with the project officer Antonio Scarafino and the EC reviewer, the review meeting was attended by AeRoTwin coordinators Stjepan Bogdan and Ivana Mikolić, as well as the leaders of work packages (WPs) and project team members Silvia de los Santos (CTA), José Ramiro Martinez de Dios (USE), and Ashutosh Choubey (ICL). During the meeting, project partners had the opportunity to present their respective WPs and discuss relevant issues as well as the plan for the upcoming period.
