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.
Have a good idea for a ROS/ROS-Industrial related project? Want to work on ROS(-I) software components, documentation, standardisation or a related topic?
If you or your company are located within the European Union, 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 every three months.
The next cut-off date is: September 14, 2018. That is in about one month.
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).
