EU lanceert robotics programma – 240.000 nieuwe banen verwacht

16 juni 2014

The European Commission (EC) and 180 companies and research organisations (under the umbrella of euRobotics) have launched the world's largest civilian research and innovation programme in robotics.
Covering manufacturing, agriculture, health, transport, civil security and households, the initiative – called SPARC – is the EU’s industrial policy effort to strengthen Europe’s position in the global robotics market (€60 billion a year by 2020). This initiative is expected to create over 240,000 jobs in Europe, and increase Europe’s share of the global market to 42%. The EC will invest €700 million and euRobotics €2.1 billion (Persbericht Europese Commissie, 3 juni 2014).
