Innorobo signs 5 major international agreements, thus opening the worldwide robotics movement up to its exhibitors and partners
Europe’s leading summit on the worldwide robotics market has recently signed 5 strategic agreements with leading players in Asia and North America. Innorobo is joining forces with JARA (the Japan Robot Association, Japan), KAR (the Korea Association of Robot Industry, South Korea), SIAA (the Singapore Industrial Automation Association, Singapore), CRIA (the China Robot Industry Alliance, China) and Meckler Media (RoboUniverse, the USA).
Innoecho, producer of Innorobo and developer of TheDisruptory, a collaborative worldwide robotics directory, is thus becoming the key European contact of various robotics federations in Asia to trade market information and insights, as well as mutual knowledge of key players in robotics innovation around the globe. Innoecho is making a long-term commitment to building relationships and cooperative ventures related to these emerging technologies by supporting its partners’ events, including Robotworld (South Korea), IREX (Japan), CIROS (China), Asian Robotics Week (Singapore) and RoboUniverse (the USA). As part of an exclusive partnership agreement, the conference series to be held at Singapore’s “Asian Robotics Week” will be produced by Innoecho in 2016.
“Over the past 8 years, we have built strong relationships with robotics federations around the world. Each federation manages a large community on its respective continent. We wish to see them share ideas and cooperate, because the robotics movement is worldwide,” says Catherine Simon, CEO of Innorobo.
These agreements were born of mutual respect for the efforts everyone has been making to speed up the emergence of technologies that have the potential to transform our economic models, our ways of working and our society as a whole, with the shared values of open innovation, concrete cooperative ventures and a human approach to the robotics transformation that is currently underway. Asia’s largest federations have signed with Innoecho, as has Meckler Media (RoboUniverse, USA).
“At Innorobo 2016 in Paris, we aim to offer our visitors the widest range of top-name speakers and world-renowned experts for very high-level conferences. We also want to enable our exhibitors and partners to have rich discussions and unlock opportunities to cooperate to develop markets around the globe, as well as the chance to take part in a worldwide community focusing on robotics technologies,” adds Simon.
These agreements will enable TheDisruptory, a worldwide directory of key players in robotics innovation, which Innoecho has been working on for several months, to become operational at the end of the year and to open knowledge of and expertise in the global robotics community, through a collaborative approach, to all sectors that are impacted.
These partnerships show that the robotics movement is worldwide and that we have to go beyond our borders to speed up international collaboration, which is an absolute necessity on these emerging markets.
“We hope that regional clusters, national organizations and European federations will capitalize on the opportunities for cooperation and on the international renown created by these agreements,” concludes Simon.
For its 6th edition, Innorobo is embarking on a new step in its development strategy by opening its doors in Paris for a 3-day panorama showcasing the state of the art of the global robotics industry, with a larger exhibition hall, conferences by top-name specialists and a number of workshops and demonstration areas.
Unlike sector-specific events (catering to industrial automation, smart regions, smart homes, etc.), Innorobo showcases robotics technologies to a wide range of industries, thus promoting cross-innovation and providing players in a number of sectors with new opportunities for growth and diversification. Like the Internet, robotics technologies are nearly boundless, helping to shape innovation throughout society as a whole. Innorobo brings together all of these sectors in 6 core themes rolled out for the 2015 edition:
- Smart Cities,
- Technology and Foresight,
- Medical and Healthcare Robotics,
- Industry 4.0,
- Smart Homes
- and Field Robotics.
