On June 28, 2022, the Robotix-Academy project partners met for the last time with the Project Advisory Board (PBA) at ZeMA to present the final report of the project. The Academy project consortium as well as all other project participants were pleased about the successful establishment of the research cluster for industrial robotics.
The results after six and a half years of joint project work are impressive: The Academy was able to hold approximately 430 events between 2016 and 2022, reaching over 44,000 participants. Project-specific formats such as the Robotix Lecture, the scientific conference RACIR, the Summer School and the Roadshow have been developed and consolidated over the years.
During the 18-month project extension in 2021/22, more than 60 pupil workshops were offered and more than 1,500 pupils were made aware of the topic of technology. Here, the Robotix Academy was able to make a contribution to strengthening the STEM subjects and mobilizing the young researchers of tomorrow.
The Project Monitoring Board (PBA) could convince itself of the successful implementation of the Interreg project Robotix-Academy and ask questions about the final report. Special appreciation was given by Interreg for the successful implementation of the project actions, the well-rehearsed cross-border cooperation as well as the achieved key figures 2016-22. The cross-border research cluster for industrial robotics and MRK has thus become an established factor in the Greater Region.
