DIH-HERO EU research grant awarded to Loop Robots
🦾 We are super excited by this award from DIH-HERO for our innovative technology demonstrator project with leading European hospitals, focusing on key technologies for successful practical implementation of powerful UVC disinfection in hospitals.
Big thanks to the DIH-HERO team for their work to accelerate the development of robotic solutions for the healthcare sector and big congratulations to all other awarded projects.🎉
DIH-HERO awards 9 Technology Demonstrator Projects proposed by project partners from various pan-European countries, each project receives up to €100k.
The projects awarded are aimed to demonstrate the feasibility of new, innovative and enhanced robotic solutions in healthcare application domains the development of Healthcare robotics is accelerated. Furthermore, the DIH-HERO Technology Demonstrators are meant to broaden the uptake of robotics solutions in healthcare and to increase future investments in robotics in healthcare.
The entire healthcare sector but particularly Europe offers a high potential for the development of robotic technologies. The reason lies amongst other in the numerous industrial locations in Europe, in the medical advancement and in the needs of an aging society.
The principle barriers for an even faster development of robotics solutions are still high development costs and quiet diverted national regulations. Meanwhile the global market requires quick innovation.
Digital Innovation Hub Healthcare Robotics is an independent and sustainable platform for all those who are active in the healthcare ecosystem. DIH-HERO started in January 2019 funded by the European Community. Financially supported until December 2022 our mission is to create a sustaining network that connects players in the healthcare sector and to support small and medium sized enterprises. Its aim is to speed up innovation and reduce time-to-market with a pan-European network.
