  • Robotics have captured human imagination for years. The advent of new and more accurate sensors, the availability of more computational power at a fraction of the cost, size and power requirements, the proliferation of open source software and hardware, the introduction of new materials and production methods like 3D printing have made robotics more affordable. These technology improvements coupled with social trends like the maker movement, crowd-funding, the aging population, the need for more efficient production, etc. have made robotics more appealing to young innovators and entrepreneurs.

    The MIT Enterprise Forum Greece and the MIT Club of Greece invite you to join the upcoming event “The Robotic Evolution: From Fiction to Reality” on Wednesday 18th of December, at 18:30 at the Eugenides Foundation. Our goal is to explore the intriguing world of robotics and the exciting business and research opportunities for Greek researchers and entrepreneurs.
