Athens to host Europe’s biggest robotics festival



Athens has been announced as the host for Europe's biggest robotics festival and competition to be held on April 4-5, 2020, at the Serafeio Conference Centre.

‘Robotex’ is an annual event which started out in Estonia and has become a worldwide event and has so far run in more than ten countries. The program includes robotics competitions, speeches and seminars pertaining to robotics, that are expected to attract tens of thousands of visitors from almost 50 different countries.

Open robotics competitions are the heart of the festival and are based on internationally accepted standards.

Teams that have created their own robot and wish to compete with it can participate in the event. Apart from that, if an individual has not built a robot but is interested in robotics, they can participate as audiences for the competitions, speeches and seminars and come into contact with new technologies and specialists of the robotics domain.

There are three competition categories, based on age: Level A for children up to 12yrs old, B for teenagers up to 17 yrs old and Level C for adults and college students.

Researchers, engineers and business experts in the field of robotics will share their insights and experience with the public in relevant presentations and discussions.
