Robotics4EU is facilitating a more widespread adoption of (AI-based) robots in healthcare, inspection and maintenance of infrastructure, agri-food, and agile production by implementing responsible research and innovation (RRI) principles in the robotic community. The project will engage in extensive consultation with designers, end-users, policy makers, and the general public across Europe about what challenges and opportunities exist for increased societal acceptance of robots. It will also develop a platform for information sharing across the robotics community that will allow for the widespread dissemination and adoption of good practices that are developed through the course of the project.
The IMRO lab is partnering with NTNU's Department of Interdisciplinary Studies of Culture to lead engagement with the healthcare community and implementing RRI practices during the research project.
