About Rodin


November 1st, 2018 – October 31st, 2023

The RODIN project is a pan-European network of networks aiming to bring together European Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs) in robotics. RODIN helps robotics DIH networks to cooperate and strengthen the competitiveness of the European robotics market. RODIN is funded under the EU Horizon 2020 programme.

RODIN coordinates activities that are considered important for market segments with a potential of robotization: Healthcare, Agile Production, Infrastructure Inspection and Maintenance, and Agri-food.

The European Commission granted at least one project in each area to build a network of specialised DIHs. DIH-HERO focuses on healthcare robotics, DIH² and TRINITY work in agile production. RIMA concentrates on inspection and maintenance of infrastructure, while AgROBOfood concentrates on robotics in the agri-food sector. The overall aim of RODIN is to coordinate activities among these projects and support them by increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of their activities.

The project also coordinates communication and outreach activities, promotes the open calls that are issued by the mentioned projects to support SMEs in their digital transformation. This support is done, for instance, via demonstrators and platforms development, technology transfer experiments, or other services. The first calls are being launched mid-2019.
