NCCR Robotics

Intelligent Robots for Improving the Quality of Life

The National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) Robotics is a Swiss nationwide organisation funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation pulling together top researchers from all over the country with the objective of developing new, human oriented robotic technology for improving our quality of life. The Centre was opened on 1st December 2010, and binds together experts from five world-class research institutions; École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) (leading house), Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich (ETH Zurich) (co-leading house), Universität Zürich (UZH), Istituto Dalle Molle di Studi sull’Intelligenza Artificiale (IDSIA) Lugano and University of Bern (UNIBE) for a period of up to 12 years.

We are at the forefront of robotics research and develop robots that co-exist symbiotically with humans in order to enable them to help both individuals and society.


The 4th of the Swiss Robotics Industry Day is taking place at the Swiss Tech Convention Centre, Lausanne, Switzerland, on 1st of November 2018. It is designed for industry professionals to experience technologies from the labs of NCCR Robotics and the SMEs of the Swiss Robotics ecosystem. It is a unique opportunity for the industry to gain insight into cutting edge research & emerging technologies.

The event features talks from invited speakers from both industry and academia, with time for networking and discovering the robot demonstrations in the exhibition floor.
