In its teaching and research activities EURA, cooperates with the Research Centre of European Private Law (ReCEPL), which was established in 2016 and carries out research about Private law at European level in comparative perspective among different European national systems and in perspective of their uniformity. The Research Centre aims to provide advice, to draw up proposals for legislation in cooperation with institutional bodies and in cooperation with universities and national and international research centres, also in order to develop specific advanced training courses. ReCEPL carries out coordination of the Neapolitan Section of the Academy of European private lawyers and of the Observatory of uniform European private law, that are already active at Law Faculty of Suor Orsola Benincasa University.The Centre collaborates with the Law Faculty of other Neapolitan Universities (Federico II, and Second University of Naples), with the Political Science Faculty of the University of Milan, with the Law Faculty at the European University of Rome and with the CoForLaw centre - Comparative and Foreign LAW, based in Milan. The collaboration is expressed in the implementation of research projects co-financed at European or National level, concerning the standardization of contract law in Europe (tools and methods), in the preparation of regulatory articulated, as uniform law, and in the promotion and publication of studies on indicated topics.
CONBOTS (CONnected through roBOTS) is an EU-funded project which aims to help humans to learn fine sensorimotor skills (handwriting and music learning) by assisting them with robots, artificial agents and augmented reality.
Project Objective: From a parent coordinating movements to help a child learn to walk, to a violinist training a concerto, humans rely on physical interaction to learn from each other and from the environment. Building on a strongly multidisciplinary foundation with an integrated approach, CONBOTS proposes a paradigm shift that aims to augment handwriting and music learning through robotics, by creating a physically interacting robotic platform connecting humans in order to facilitate the learning of complex sensorimotor tasks. The newly designed platform will combine four enabling technologies: i) compact robotic haptic devices to gently interact with upper limbs; ii) an interactive controller yielding physical communication, integrating differential Game Theory (GT) and an algorithm to identify the partner’s control; iii) a bi-directional user interface encompassing AR-based application-driven serious games, and a set of wearable sensors and instrumented objects; iv) Machine learning algorithms for tailoring learning exercises to the user physical, emotional, and mental state. CONBOTS is building on recent neuroscientific findings that showed the benefits of physical interaction to performing motor tasks together, where the human central nervous system understands a partner motor control and can use it to improve task performance and motor learning. This will be implemented on innovative robotic technology, wearable sensors and machine learning techniques to give rise to novel human-human and human-robot interaction paradigms applied in two different learning contexts: i) training graphomotor skills in children learning handwriting; ii) augmenting learning performance in beginner musicians. Using its neuroscience-driven unifying approach to motor learning and physical communication CONBOTS will expand the impact and the application of robotics to the education industry.
is University of Trento's Research Project. The FRICoRE project aims to contribute to the effective and coherent application of EU law in consumer protection, migration, data protection, health law, non-discrimination focusing on the EU Charter and taking into account the impact of digital technologies on vulnerability and enforcement of fundamental rights, and to provide guidelines on effective enforcement by courts, administrative enforcers, ADR bodies. INBOTS Areas of Expertise are: Entrepreneurship and non-technical support to SMEs; Debate on legal, ethics & socio-economic aspects; Accessible and multidisciplinary education programs; Standardization and benchmarking; Regulation and risk management framework; Societal and socio-economic uptake.
