As a part of its mission EURA addresses the widest scope of subject-matters, and provides different activities and initiatives, aimed at specific interested groups. In the EURA interdisciplinary seminars, experts from the most diverse fields are invited to present their most advanced research, encouraging participants to discuss topics on the forefront of the debate on the regulation of robotics and AI.
A Summer School is organized every year in July, allowing international students, policy makers, and professionals from different backgrounds to acquire the knowledge and interdisciplinary skills necessary to understand the ELSE issues posed by the development and diffusion of robotics in EU.
An intensive three-day Boot-Camp course offers to practitioners, investors, entrepreneurs and businesses the multidisciplinary and in-depth knowledge which they need for placing R&AI products onto the market, or for using them in their professional activities.
High level multidisciplinary classes are also taught by EURA’s fellows within the six different PhD programs offered by the host institution.
Through the EURA Young Scholars Prize, once every year PhD students and young researchers are invited to submit their papers on any of the subject areas covered by the Centre of Excellence. The best paper will be presented at a special session of the EURA annual Conference.
The EURA Conference takes place every year within the Pisa International Robotics Festival. The Conference brings together experts, policy-makers and representatives from the industry, to debate both new and existing regulation, and draw some conclusions on future challenges and perspectives. Based on all the research activities conducted and on the information gained through the EURA workshops and Conferences a policy-paper, providing early identification and assessment of the most current and relevant ELSE issues in the regulation of R&AI, and formulating recommendations on the actions to be adopted thereof. Last but not least, many events and dissemination tools – such as the interactive page on website, the video-series, and the organization of open-days and science cafés –, allow the general public to be involved in the Center’s activities, increasing social awareness and promoting an informed debate.
