The EU H2020 ROSIN project has the goal to advance open-source robot software for industry and the robotics community as a whole. One of the main activities of the project is a grant program with a total amount of 3+ Million EUR for Focused Technical Projects (FTPs) on ROS software development.
Sofar, we have funded almost 40 FTP projects. Many (intermediate) results can be found here:
Do you have a good idea for a ROS/ROS-Industrial related project and want to work on ROS(-I) software components, documentation, standardisation or a related topic?
Are you or your company located within the European Union (or any of the Associated Countries)?
Then submit an FTP proposal and apply for a ROSIN grant by following the steps outlined in the applicants guide.
FTP proposals may be submitted all year long but are evaluated 3-4 times a year.
The next cut-off date are: June 14 and September 13, 2019 .
Proposals are short (a few pages) and concise. Applicants are guided through the process by an application wizard and a guide is provided.
To submit your FTP, please visit rosin-project.eu/ftps .
If you have any questions about the process, whether your idea or project would qualify, send me or one of my colleagues a message either through ROS Discourse or by email (see the Contact page on the site for addresses).
