LIFEBOTS Exchange is a project that fosters seeks cross-sectoral, international and interdisciplinary collaboration to advance social robotics with a focus on healthcare. The project promotes mobility and staff exchanges between researchers at universities and robot developers at companies across 11 countries. Through these exchanges researchers and developers advance practical knowledge about the capabilities of social robots and how they can be integrated into people's lives in meaningful and ethical ways. LIFEBOTS Exchange is currently on hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but we look forward to resuming activities once international travel is again possible
