Frankfurt, May 27, 2021 — As the economies reopen from the pandemic, Asia, Europe and America adjust their robotics research funding programs (R&D). What are the targets of the officially driven government programs today? This has been researched by the IFR and published in the 2021 update paper of “World Robotics R&D Programs”.
Please find the information paper “World Robotics R&D Programs” by IFR here.
[Professor Jong-Oh Park, Vice Chair IFR Research Committee, updated the first edition of the World Robotics R&D Programs with the latest figures and added some additional national programs. We thank him and his team for their dedicated work. Follow the press release to download the latest edition.]
