Sorry guys and gals, but summer is over. To cheer you up, here’s a recap of all the latest news, upcoming events and job offers in the field of robotics.

What happened at Innorobo 2015?

Year after year, Innorobo is strengthening its position as Europe’s leading summit for the world robotics community. For its 5th edition, Innorobo brought together over 350 speakers, experts and senior managers from companies that design or use today’s and tomorrow’s robotic systems. Exhibitors and visitors from around the world came to showcase and discover the latest technologies and meet other stakeholders from the ecosystem to share their vision for the future and build business relationships and partnerships.
200 exhibitors from 20 countries (meaning the event grew by 30% compared to 2014) showed the visitors how this market has expanded, with industrial robotics up 12% and personal service robotics up 28% in 2014. Exhibitors showed a great many innovations for the first time in France or in Europe, proving how dynamic this “industry” is.
