Centre of Excellence for Autonomous and Cooperative Robotic Systems organized 1st ACROSS Workshop
The workshop was held on December 18, 2017, in White Hall at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing (FER).
Program contained overview of the project activities in the Assessment Period, presentation of the ACROSS Ecosystem assessment reports and ACROSS roadmaps for achieving excellence.
KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Innovation Centre Nikola Tesla have participated the workshop as partners from the project. Representatives from Croatian Chamber of Economy, Ministry of Regional Development and EU Funds and State Secretary from Ministry of Science and Education also participated and shown their big interest in ACROSS Centre of Excellence.
Besides the Workshop, 2nd ACROSS Strategic Committee Meeting was held which was chaired by the State Secretary from Ministry of Science and Education.
ACROSS CoE is inviting you to the research seminar:
"Distributed hybrid control of multi-agent systems under high level specifications"
which will be given by Prof. Dimos V. Dimarogonas, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden. The seminar will take place on Tuesday, December 19, 2017 at 11h, in the Gray Hall of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing.
You can find more about the lecturer and the seminar in the detailed news content.
TEAMING partners visited SAAB facilities in Linköping, Sweden. Furthermore, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing and SAAB with the goal of creating the Centre of Excellence for Autonomous and Cooperative Robotic Systems (ACROSS). Several media houses also published the news (Večernji list, Lider, HRT).
Public presentation of the ACROSS Teaming Project took place at the Ministry of Science and Education of the Republic of Croatia (MZO), in Zagreb, Croatia, 38 Donje Svetice, on Friday, July 28, 2017 at 11:00 hours.
Detailed information is available at the MZO web page and an interview with the Faculty's Dean Prof. Mislav Grgić and Prof. Ivan Petrovic by the Croatian National Television can be accessed at the following link (in Croatian).
On Monday 4th of September 2017 the Kick-off meeting of the project Centre of Excellence for Autonomous and Cooperative Robotic Systems - ACROSS took place at UNIZG-FER.
ACROSS project passed the first phase at the H2020-WIDESPREAD-2016-2017 call and is coordinated by Prof. Ivan Petrovic. The project is implemented in a strategic partnership as a long-term joint venture between the UNIZG-FER, the Royal Institute of Technology - KTH and the Innovation Centre Nikola Tesla - ICENT.
Out of a total of 208 projects submitted to the European Commission public call, 30 projects from 12 countries were adopted for financing the first phase, which concernes the development of business plans of Centres of excellence. The ACROSS project is the only accepted project in the first phase of Teaming from Croatia (1.9.2017. – 31.8.2018).
The overall objective of the project is to create a Centre of Excellence for Autonomous and Cooperative Robotic Systems in Croatia (ACROSS CoE), which will be at the forefront of research and innovation of novel methodologies and advanced engineering approaches in the targeted domains. To achieve the overall objective, the proposal focuses on long-term objectives for Teaming Phase 2 and on one-year objective for Teaming Phase 1. If passed to the second phase ACROSS CoE will be supported by the EU with additional 15 million EUR and by the Croatian government with at least 15 million EUR for 7 years.
