EDIH Title

Belgrade Robotics Hub

Description

ETF, as a formal entity, is an orchestrator of Belgrade Robotics Hub (BRH), an informal organization between key stakeholders in robotics and AI, established as a partnership between the University of Belgrade institutions, partner companies, and organizations. The BRH members are three leading robotics laboratories at the University of Belgrade (ETF Robotics at School of Electrical Engineering, Center for Robotics at Institute Mihajlo Pupin, and Laboratory for Robotics and Artificial Intelligence at Faculty of Mechanical Engineering), partner companies (ABB Serbia, Servoteh, TipTeh, Gimatic and Vision Equipment) and Science Technology Park Belgrade. 
BRH's mission is to provide companies, students, investors, innovators, policymakers, and the general public with high-quality robotics-related services in education, technology, and business. We aim to make a continuous contribution to robotics innovations, companies’ productivity, and competitiveness, opening new opportunities for young engineers in Serbia and stimulating interaction in the regional robotics community.
BRH vision is to be a focal point, initiator, creator and the biggest support of robotics and AI research, education, and applications in Serbia and wider in the region of South-East Europe.

BRH services:
Technical services: joint, pre-competitive R&D, secondment from companies
specific R&D, technology concept development, proof of concept
and concept validation, prototyping, small series production
renting equipment, low-rate production, platform technology infrastructure (collaborative robots - Franka Emika, Neura Robotics; industrial robot cells - ABB, DENSO, FANUC; wearable sensors - Delsys; computer vision - Intel, Optitrack). 
Ecosystem & network: scouting, brokerage, awareness creation, dissemination, ecosystem building, workshops, seminars to share knowledge and experience, organizing (country) visits, roadshows
Find investments: connection to funding sources, investment plans, identification of opportunities, creating consortia, development of proposals
