ACMIT partnering with the new CELLI network 02.07.2014
In early July, the new Central European Living Lab for Intelligent Robotics (CELLI) has been constituted in a meeting in Tihany, Hungary. The original idea for CELLI is to serve as a user-centered, open-innovation ecosystem, integrating concurrent research and innovation processes within a public–private–people partnership.Altogether, 22 organizations are joining CELLI from 6 countries. CELLI is now an established independent platform within the Central European region, extensively relying on an international network of key partner institutions and companies. The CELLI has three major focuses for operation:
- Cutting edge development in the fundamentals of robotics — including hardware and software; mechatronics, control and applications, linked with cognitive science.
- Bridging the development projects to particular applications, tapping into the scientific results to solve the emerging issues of modern society.
- Disseminating current knowledge about robotics both in structured form via university courses and to the wider public.
ACMIT is one of the founding members of CELLI. „For us the new CELLI network offers a further option for integrated research projects, exchange of programs, joint publications and creation of EU proposals in one of our key research areas, i.e. medical robotics“ explained Dr.Gernot Kronreif, Chief Scientific Officer of ACMIT.
