The General Meeting corresponding to month 24 of COROMA was held in Santander, hosted by our partner ENSA. 26 representatives of our 16 partners attended the meeting to discuss the situation of the developments and agreed on a common work plan for the next months. The meeting was very productive and fruitful and we were able to discuss the great progress we have made in the last months regarding integration, standardization and dissemination activities.
The integration phase is quite advanced, but coordinating efforts to get practical results is always a difficult task.
The exploitation and dissemination of the results were also on the agenda: with one year remaining until the end of COROMA project, it is time to face the final steps of getting products transferable to industry beyond COROMA demonstrators; to provide the scientific society with a good legacy is also our mission, both with our dissemination activities and with our commitment to build an Open Research Data Pilot.
Finally, the general meeting also provided the opportunity to launch a “CEN Workshop Agreement” that, hopefully, it will be the origin of a new standard: an interesting activity normally alien to researchers. The chosen subject was: “Articulated industrial robots – elastostatic compliance calibration”. University of Nantes, KTH, IDEKO Research Center, University of Sheffield and, of course, DIN will be active in this agreement. The kick-off meeting was the beginning of a serie of meetings that will run parallel to COROMA project to develop the workshop agreement.
