Awards & Programs
NCCR Robotics has a number of programs in place that support the growth of the robotics community, in particular by helping young researchers to advance their career and spin off the results of their research work into successful companies. Among others, we have specific programs to facilitate exchanges between laboratories, to recognise brilliant papers from PhD students. We have successful spin-fund program that supports the growth of robotic start-ups founded by NCCR Robotics members.
Particular attention is given to female researchers, with programs that help them build their career and that facilitate inviting female scientists as keynote speakers at conferences.
