FORobotics was evaluated as “excellent”

On the 20th of may, the final evaluation of FORobotics took place virtually. The project was overall rated as “excellent”, also the sub projects got a good to excellent rating.

At the evaluation several subprojects were presented and the experts got the possibility to ask questions. The experts also had the opportunity to watch several videos of the FORobotics demonstrator beforehand. These will be online on our YouTube Channel within the next few days.

In general it was determined that FORobotics had a high intellectual impact and is a gain for our knowledge center.

We are really happy, that we got such a good evaluation although we had some “Corona” difficulties in the end phase of our poject.

The main results of the subprojects are described on their web pages.
