What is RobotUnion?

The development of new technologies and growth of business operations require time and capital, particularly from startups and SMEs. The RobotUnion acceleration programme supports and funds innovative robotics projects in Europe. The acceleration programme solves challenges caused by market entry and the high costs related to the development of technologies by bringing together companies, financiers and research institutes.

VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, the technical coordinator of the project, will lead over half of the project activities in cooperation with the FundingBox community. In addition to funding, the companies will receive technical support from leading European robotics research institutes such as VTT, the Danish Technological Institute DTI, TU Delft, Tecnalia and the PIAP.
