National robotics organisations in Europe

Here is a list of countries in Europe that have their own robotics association, which, similar to EURON, accepts institutes as members (and not individual people), if they do robotics research at an academic level. Some of these webpages are in the national language of the corresponding country.
Belgium, The Netherlands Robotics Association Benelux
Danmark Dansk Robot Forening (DIRA)
Finland Robotics Society in Finland
France Groupement de Recherche en Robotique
Germany Deutsche Gesellschaft für Robotik
Italy Associazione Italiana di Robotica e Automazione
Portugal Portuguese Robotics Society (academic)
Spain Grupo de Robótica (academic)
Asociación Española de Robótica (industry, IFR member)
Plataforma Tecnológica Española de Robótica (HispaRob) (industry, EUROP-like)
Sweden Swedish Industrial Robot Association
United Kingdom British Automation and Robotics Association

International robotics organisations

(The list is focused on organisations that accept institutes as members, and not individual people.)


EUnited Robotics
EUCOGII (2nd European Network for the Advancement of Artificial Cognitive Systems, Interaction and Robotics)


International Federation of Robotics
International Federation for the Promotion of Mechanism and Machine Science (formerly: International Federation for the Theory of Mechanisms and Machines) (members of this organisation are countries and not institutes)



Deprecated EURON II resources information

The information below is outdated, and is kept solely for archival purposes, to reflect the situation in the EC-funded EURON II phase of the network.

EURON is both creating new resources and spreading information about existing resources. Of course this website focuses on those resources created by EURON, but we also aim to provide links to other useful robotics resources.

People Resources

As well as the more measurable published resources, EURON aims toencourage networking and the flow of information between robotics people. These personal links are maybe the most important resource that EURON creates!

These links may be forged through formal activities such as the Annual Meeting and the EURON Schools, or less formally through working together in activities such as EUROP.

Special Interest Groups and robot competitions bring together people with similar specialist interests, and can be the basis of lasting friendships as well as professional relationships.

The Fraunhofer IAIS Roberta-Goes-EU educational programme that takes girls and young women into the fascinating world of robots also deserves a special mention here.
