Zagreb: a conference on robotics

The Italian Embassy in Zagreb has held a conference on robotics entitled “Robotics. From the workshop to the market”. Organised as part of the integrated promotion initiatives, the event took place yesterday, 6 October, at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Zagreb.

It was opened by the Ambassador of Italy in Zagreb, Pierfrancesco Sacco, and by the Rector of the University of Zagreb, Damir Boras, and was attended by representatives of various competent Croatian ministries as well as by prestigious Italian and Croatian experts in the robotics sector including Bruno Siciliano (Federico II University of Naples), Giorgio Metta (Italian Institute of Technology in Genoa) and Bojan Jerbic (Croatian Robotics Centre of Excellence, CRTA). Also present were the UCIMU association and the robot manufacturer Gideon Brothers.

The initiative helped to further strengthen the partnership between Italy and Croatia in a sector that is crucial for the growth and efficiency of economic systems such as robotics and new technologies, which receive significant parts of the EU funding that is allocated based on the NRRPs of both countries.

Thise conference promoted by the Embassy, which follows a previous conference on Industry 4.0 last April, focussed on the recent technological and organisational developments of robotics both in Italy and in Croatia. Issues related to their transition to industrial and commercial uses and to both public and associative tools available to facilitate their adoption by companies of robotic technologies, especially SMEs, were also addressed. The event was closed by a demonstration session of robotic artefacts from both Italian and Croatian universities, including the futuristic robotic dog “Spot” from Boston Dynamics, one of only two in Europe.
