International ROBOFORUM 2014 has united brilliant scientists in the field of robotics and related sciences, as well as policy makers, industrial designers and popularizers of science from around the world.
The main objective of the Forum was the massive coverage of global issues of robotics in different projections and through different angles of perception. Highly technical issues in robotics remained outside discussion on ROBOFORUM.
Within four days, from 15 to 18 May, 52 speakers shared their knowledge, 24 of which were foreign colleagues from the UK, the U.S., Korea, Canada, France, Singapore, Slovenia, Italy, Spain and other countries. About 40 thousand people in Russia and the world could see a live broadcast of ROBOFORUM 2014.
Since the creation of robots lies at the intersection of engineering, scientific and creative competences, one of the main topics of the Forum was “design thinking in the industrial sector, engineering entrepreneurship and technology education in the field of robotics”.
During each day of the Forum creators of robots presented their engineering creations in "MY ROBOT" program; in an interview format world stars in robotics shared the secrets of their technical creations.
Broadcast of the Forum was organized on websites of ROBOFORUM, BAL ROBOTOV, Artplay, Robohub, Robopodcast, Theory and Practice, and others.
ROBOFORUM was organized within the Culture Year of Russia-UK. The forum was held with the support of the Government of Moscow. The organizer of the Forum is WeMakeThis. The coorganizers were British Council and Grishin Robotics. We thank all partners and friends for their help and support!
ROBOFORUM expanded the boundaries of the conventional view on the problems of robotics in the world context. Will see you at the next ROBOFORUM!
THE FIRST INTERNATIONAL ROBOFORUM IN RUSSIA HAS TAKEN PLACE IN MOSCOW
In Moscow the International ROBOFORUM 2014 has come to a close. The fourday cross - disciplinary ROBOFORUM discussion platform brought together more than 50 leading scientists, famous designers, businessmen and politicians, brilliant artists and the best engineers, as well as the most active popularisers of science from around the world. The main topic of discussion at the Forum was the future of robotics and the Russian robot market. During the first two days, discussion revolved around issues concerning interaction between science and government, science and business. The last two days of the Forum were dedicated to popular scientific and artistic formats.
ROBOFORUM 2014 became a first-of-a-kind, unique opportunity for scientists, experts, investors and government leaders to meet together and discuss topics, without which it is obvious that the economy of the future is not possible. Nevertheless, the first International ROBOFORUM announces the completion of its work, but the BAL ROBOTOV continues: the exhibition featuring more than 40 exhibits has been extended until 20 July.
ROBOFORUM is a robotics global international discussion platform. We invite robotics experts and scientists, constructors and producers of robots, as well as any specialists in relating fields to fill in a registration form and participate in ROBOFORUM.
