Twente Robotics: Kick Off and First Symposium

Twente Robotics is one of the newly approved programs that brings robotics research groups together at the UT. To build a strong robotics community we will have several symposia per year, open to those interested in robotics.

The kick-off will be on February 13, at 15:00. Firsts, the idea behind program will be discussed, and several researchers will pitch and interactively demonstrate their research. Afterwards, there will be time for snacks and drinks. It is the ideal opportunity to get to know the work of your colleagues.


We need an approximate head count, please register before 11 February 23:59 here. We aim for researchers (PhD students, PD and staff) and MSc students doing graduation work in robotics.
