F&P Robotics attended the EUnited Robotics members’ assembly in Brussels on 18 October 2019. The new Chairman of EUnited Robotics for the period 2019-2022 was elected – Wilfried Eberhardt, Chief Marketing Officer, KUKA AG.
He succeeds Walter Zulauf, Director of Technology, Güdel Group AG, whose three-year term had ended. After the election, Mr. Eberhardt said: “I am delighted to work proactively toward debunking the misconceptions about robotics and showing how this inspiring technology can provide economic progress and societal well-being.” For F&P Robotics it served as a great occasion to meet up with represents of the DG GROW at the European Commission and discuss the future of Horizon Europe framework. F&P Robotics offers products in a growing market with a promising outlook: The International Federation of Robotics (IFR) outlook predicts a strong sales increase for professional and personal service robots (2019-2022). The demand for supportive robot solutions for the ageing societies in Europe and Asia also represents a considerable growth potential for medical robots.
