RIMA Network: Solutions, Impacts and Results for a better Europe

Close this search box.

Project cluster relation: Yes: https://drones4safety.eu/ https://drones4energy.dk/

Areas mainly addressed: Maintenance and Inspection 

Main questions to be answered: 

· How robotics solutions can effectively impact and improve EU citizens lives? 

· Is the FSTP concept, as key tools for innovation, effective and replicable for other organisations? 

· How the system of DIHS neTWORKS can help dynamize the innovation ecosystem in Europe? 

WS Description: If you want to participate in the discussion on how robotics for inspection and maintenance innovative applications and methodologies does affect the overall EU ecosystem, this is a great opportunity to get to know all actors. 

Do not expect a standard project presentation but an opportunity to speak with key stakeholders and how they shape their sectors with robotics. Rima staff will showcase flagship robotic applications with great impact in their ecosystems as well as sector specific representatives of the 6 domains involved in the project, such as: Nuclear, Energy, Water, transport, transportation hubs and oil and gas. 

These representatives will deepen on how to tackle practical challenges in the current multi crisis scenario, and how these applications could contribute, with their grain of sand, to the huge challenge of the EU strategic autonomy. 

Intended outcome: Workshop on recent developments in technology or applications, Information about community involvement and services offered (e.g. DIHs, open calls, platforms, …), Workshop discussion topics of common interest, success stories, use cases, etc 

Approach: Min 00 Introduction by Project Coordinator and Sustainable Manager (Christophe) 

Min 05 Open Discussion with experiment coordinators of RIMA experiments impact EU citizens daily lives (with online only live Q&A to guide the discussion)
