Twinning coordination action for spreading excellence in Aerial Robotics - AeRoTwin is a EU H2020 Twinning project coordinated by the Laboratory for Robotics and Intelligent Control Systems - LARICS from the University of Zagreb Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing - UNIZG FER.


Funding: EU Horizon 2020, CSA - Coordination and support action
Grant Agreement number: 810321


The overarching goal of AeRoTwin is to decrease networking gaps and deficiencies between UNIZG-FER and internationally leading counterparts in EU, by significantly enhancing S&T capacity of LARICS at UNIZG-FER in the field of Aerial Robotics. Through carefully planned twinning actions, AeRoTwin will raise UNIZG-FER research profile as well as the research profile of its personnel. On the way to reach the main goal of the project, we plan to achieve the following Objectives:

Objective 1
Increase UNIZG-FER research excellence and innovation capacity in the field of aerial robotics, in the following Strategic Research Domains (SRDs): SRD1) Cooperative robotic missions, SRD2) Aerial robot navigation, and SRD3) Aerial robot configurability (explained in more details in section 1.3.2). This Objective will be achieved through:

  • S&T knowledge transfer that will implement expert visits, short-term visits, joint summer schools and co-supervising PhD students
  • hands-on experience that will implement on-site trainings

Objective 2
Enhance UNIZG-FER networking capacity and scientific visibility. This Objective will be achieved through:

  • strengthening links to aerial robotics research community by conference attendance, special sessions organization, workshops and tutorials attendance, participation in joint EU and international projects and publication of joint journal papers,
  • dissemination and outreach activities planned for the general public and school students

Objective 3
Improve UNIZG-FER quality of innovation management and technology transfer. This Objective will be achieved through:

  • strengthening links to aerial robotics industry by participation at industry fairs and by collaboration agreements with businesses
  • strengthening links to aerial robotics end users by implementation of end-user oriented workshops
  • innovation management knowledge transfer by organization of innovation management trainings and technology transfer workshops
