Project Seed Results

On the 15th December 2009 the evaluation procedure for the Project Seed was closed.
At the call deadline (29th July 2009) 234 complete projects had been submitted.
The valuation procedure was performed by 40 scientists with an extremely high level of experience from an Italian and international background, divided into specific panels for each platform.
The valuation was structured into two phases. On the basis of the valuation criteria specified in the call a short list of projects was created from those projects with a score equal to or above 80%.
The short list was made up of 57 projects, equivalent to the top 24% of the proposals submitted.
In the second phase the 57 projects were again analysed by using a mix of the various panels bearing in mind the strategy of each proposal in particular relation to the IIT scientific plan.
Following this second analysis, the evaluation committee suggested to finance at least the top 15% of projects due to the very high quality of the proposals submitted. Therefore out of the 234 proposals submitted, 37 were considered suitable for financing.
The overall procedure lasted 20 weeks.

    HFR 2009 Workshop

    IIT is proud to announce to HFR 2009 Workshop!

    The workshop will be held on December 3rd, 2009, at Fondazione Mediaterraneo in Sestri Levante, Italy.

    Excerpt from the website which can be reached at

    The growing need to automate daily tasks combined with new robot technologies are driving the development of human-friendly robots, i.e., safe and dependable machines, operating in the close vicinity to humans or directly interacting with persons in a wide range of domains. The technology shift from classical industrial robots, which are safely kept away from humans in cages, to robots, which will be used in close collaboration with humans, requires major technological challenges that need to be overcome.
    The objective of the workshop is to share knowledge between young researchers on Human-Friendly Robotics (HFR) from design and control towards safety and ethical issues involving the introduction of robots into everyday life.
