Synergic Crowd Innovation Platform
Open Innovation environment for industry and academia
COVID-19 – Call for potential solutions for encouraging physical distancing between children in school
VOUCHERS FOR RESEARCH PROJECT RELATED TO COVID-19
Pilot Action related to fight the COVID-19
Crowd innovation is as a revolutionary process for research and innovation projects’ development which can help in the fight against the COVID-19. By matching innovative ideas - Industry 4.0, Additive manufacturing and Micro-nano technologies - with specific technical competences, the SYNERGY platform has created an opportunity for all the actors involved in the COVID-19 emergency to receive direct support for their ideas and needs. Win a voucher to the value of up to 3.000 EUR! More information can be found on the platform and SYNERGY webpage.
INFRASTURCTURE SHARING PILOT ACTION RESULTS
The winner of the Voucher is a match between Blue Danube Robotics and Salzburg Research GmbH
Salzburg Research will equip their Panda Robot (by Franka Emica) with BlueDanube’s Airskin to experiment firstly, with robot teaching situations where the robot is taught by a human how to perform e.g. a picking and placing task; and secondly, with actual collaborative tasks where the human is within reach of the robot and where the airskin is an additional safety element on top of Panda’s own sensors and an external video-based collision avoidance mechanism.
About SYNERGY project
Synergic networking for innovativeness enhancement of Central European actors focused on high-tech industry
SYNERGY aims at strengthening currently underdeveloped linkages, cooperation and synergies between companies, industry, research, intermediaries and policy makers in central Europe. The project will analyse funded and finalised innovation projects and cluster institutions involved in projects into three key areas covering the most promising modern industrial technologies. These areas include additive manufacturing and 3D printing, micro- and nanotechnology-related processes and materials, as well as the industry 4.0 sector.
