Brubotics Launch event - 27 April 2016

As to celebrate the launch of the BRUSSELS HUMAN ROBOTICS RESEARCH CENTER BruBotics and to present our ambitious goals, BruBotics and the VUB have the pleasure to invite you to the BruBotics Launch Event.

On 27 April 2016, the 70+ BruBotics researchers together with several key note speakers will submerge you into the inspiring world of Human Robotics, and show you how this technology will have an impact on the people we live with and the world we live in. We’ll showcase some of our most exciting projects, demonstrate how we are helping shape the robotic (r)evolution and give insights in how robotics will affect sectors as diverse as healthcare and manufacturing.
