AeRoTwin project

Project name: Twinning coordination action for spreading excellence in Aerial Robotics - AeRoTwin
Project acronym: AeRoTwin
Dates: 01.09.2018 - 31.08.2021
Total budget: 997,897.50 EUR
Funding: EU Horizon 2020, CSA - Coordination and support action
Grant Agreement number: 810321

AeRoTwin is a EU H2020 Twinning project coordinated by the Laboratory for Robotics and Intelligent Control Systems - LARICS from the University of Zagreb Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing - UNIZG FER.

The overarching goal of AeRoTwin is to decrease networking gaps and deficiencies between UNIZG-FER and internationally leading counterparts in EU, by significantly enhancing S&T capacity of LARICS at UNIZG-FER in the field of Aerial Robotics. Through carefully planned twinning actions, AeRoTwin will raise UNIZG-FER research profile as well as the research profile of its personnel.

 

Partners:

  1. University of Seville (USE), Spain
  2. Imperial College London, UK
  3. Technological Corporation of Andalusia, Spain

We visited BTS 2018!

Continuing with the trend of the Lab being very active, we went to Biograd na Moru (HR), where the tenth (birthday!) edition of Breaking the Surface was held from 30th September until 7th October. Our members wento to lectures, visited demonstrations, took part in tutorials, visited a workshop and let's not forget - partied ;) Check us out at the Great Gatsby Party and Karaoke Party!

On 15th October, prof. Stjepan Bogdan and Matko Orsag presented five new projects developed in our Lab at a scientific symposium “New research projects at UNIZG-FER”. They have presented recently started projects: AEROTWIN, ENCORE, MBZIRC, SPECULARIA, and ENDORSE. At the symposium, the emphasis was put on possibilities of cooperation with economic operators as well as job opportunities on projects from young professionals and experienced researchers.

TWINNING Coordinators Day

Prof. Stjepan Bogdan and Ivana Mikolić, who are the coordinators of our new project AeRoTwin, are currently in Brussels attending the TWINNING Coordinators Day organized by the European Commission. They will attend presentations, meet experts in this area and learn a lot about how they can work on and improve the project in the future. They also used this opportunity to meet the AeRoTwin Project Officer in Brussels.

Rijeka Nautic Show

It's been a very active time for our Lab, as our Lab members went to Rijeka, Croatia, to present our work and particularly equipment at the Rijeka Nautic Show as part of our new AeRoTwin project. Three of our colleagues were there, prof. Stjepan Bogdan, Marko Car and Lovro Marković, and they presented the UAV designed during the MORUS project.

AeRoTwin Kick-Off Meeting

The Kick-off meeting of our new project, AeRoTwin, was held on September 26th, 2018 in Zagreb, at our Faculty. The meeting was attended by our Lab members, partners working on the project from the University of Seville, Imperial College London and the Technological Coropration of Andalusia, as well as a member of the Advisory Board - there was a lot to talk about!

All of the attendees introduced themselves and briefly described what they will be doing as part of the project, and other topics discussed included the dates of future meetings and other planned activities. The meeting was a great success, which is a great sign for the future of the project! Take a look at the gallery from the meeting by folowing this link.

As announced, dr. Mirko Kovač from the Imperial College London held a presentation with the title "Bioinspired Aerial Robots for Infrastructures", as part of our new project AeRoTwin, where he described his previous and current work in this area, as well as what might be in store in the near future. The invited lecture was attended by many of our students and staff and they learned a lot, asked questions and found out more about this incredibly interesting area of robotics. The gallery of the lecture can be found here. Thank you, dr. Kovač!

LARICS is the coordinator of a new project: Twinning coordination action for spreading excellence in Aerial Robotics - AeRoTwin, part of the H2020 Twinning programme. AeRoTwin is a coordinated twinning action aiming to spread excellence in aerial robotics. The partners on this project are the Imperial College of London, the University of Seville and the Technological Corporation of Andalusia.

The project's net worth is almost 7 and a half million HRK (almost €1 million). The project starts September 1st, 2018.

Project coordinators prof. Stjepan Bogdan, PhD and Ivana Mikolić, mag. ing. pointed this out:

"AeRoTwin is the first H2020 project to be coordinated by LARICS. It is the crown of our 10 years of research in the field of robotics and unmanned aerial vehicles," prof. Stjepan Bogdan explained.

"This project will offer LARICS, and by extent also the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, the chance to take part in European research and to be on equal footing with other leading international institutions in the EU. The project will increase the scientific and research capacities of the Laboratory through its many education and training activities," Ivana Mikolić said.
