The project Capacity Building in Robotics Autonomous Systems in India (IRAS- HUB), led by IIIT-Delhi, aims to establish three hubs in Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) in India to overcome the sparsity of skilled talent in robotics technology. The Hubs will be equipped with prototyping equipment and robotics software and will train researchers from Indian Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in RAS with experts from EU HEIs. IRAS-HUB is funded by European Education and Culture Executive Agency for three years (2023-2025) with ~ 800,000 Euros and involves ten partners from 5 different countries, including four HEIs from India. The partner organizations are:
The aim of this project is to develop robotics technology for problem-solving in diverse sectors of India, such as agriculture, transportation, etc., promote competencies, capacity building, and training to nurture innovation, start-ups, and aspiring entrepreneurs in robotics, and develop courses in robotics at the level of UG, PG and continued learning of working professionals.
1 standardized training program will be developed for continued learning of working professionals in RAS.
This partnership will help in the internationalization and modernization of Indian HEIs by connecting them with global robotics education and research efforts.
