Major technology areas

The ICT related topics are based on several technological areas:


Agile optical core and metro networks
Laser-based production
Application driven core photonic technology

Robotics and autonomous systems

Robots for everyday needs of workers and citizens;
Developing RAS building blocks
Involving end users ; Increase RAS system ability levels: configurability, adaptability, motion, manipulation, decisional autonomy, dependability, interaction, perception and cognitive ability.
The new multi-annual roadmap for Call 2016 is now available:
