E-Civis - Robotics Week

E-Civis - Robotics Week

Robotics Week in Romania is more than an awareness campaign, it is also a promotion campaign and an effort to build a robotics community in Romania. Although the Robotics Week is organized for several years now in the European Union, in Romania last year there were only 7 event, out of which E-Civis organized six. There are people working on robotics in Romania, but they don't know each other and they don't join efforts. 

Thus, the pledge of E-Civis has three major goals: build a community, raise awarness and educate the public. This will be achieved by organising at least 500 robotics events, introducing at least 3000 children to robotics and building a community of more than 100 active stakeholders in Romania by 2020.
