The European project COVR opened for applications for the 2nd Open Call from July to October 2019. No less than 82 applicants submitted their projects and of these 22 projects received an Award in January 2020. It is an increase of 10 % compared to applicants for the first Open Call and a testimony that the knowledge about COVR is spreading throughout Europe and different industries.
“We were happy to see applications from 18 different European countries and a wide spread of technologies and domains represented”, says Aske Bach Lassen, Project Manager for COVR at the Danish Technological Institute (DTI).
The 22 winners will start working on their projects together with their appointed COVR partner to ensure a continuous progress in widening the knowledge about safety around robots. Thus, helping even more companies making the transition into using collaborative robots in their production.
“These projects address many pressing challenges within cobot safety. It will be exciting to follow them closely and feed the outcomes into the publicly available COVR Toolkit”, says Aske Bach Lassen.
