For the first time, the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research with the Ministry of Industrial Renewal are organizing the French Robotics General Assembly, alongside INNOROBO. They will invite French entrepreneurs, Innovation directors, researchers, SME and leaders from major groups in various industries to participate and discover more about robotics, its multiple fields of application and the current and future stakes in the arena.
Well-known speakers from multinationals will also be invited to discuss the changes and solutions robotics can provide for our major societal challenges.
The Robotics General Assembly 2014 will feature a mix of formal conferences (Tuesday, March 18) and workshops (Wednesday and Thursday March 19 & 20)
The French Robotics General Assembly is part of the "France Robots Initiative" announced by French Minister of Industrial Renewal Arnaud Montebourg at the last edition of Innorobo in March 2013.
