New Research Centre on Automation and Robotics in Spain

Thanks to an agreement between the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) and the Spanish Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) a new Joint Scientific and Technologic Research Centre has been created.

The main objective of the new centre, named “Centro de Automática y Robotica” is to perform applied research with the purpose of producing results useful to the society of the 21st Century. With the synergies created and the critical mass achieved, the centre aims at positioning itself as a reference organization. Due to both human and technical resources of the institutions that combine their efforts together, the centre posseses an excellent potential. The activities of the centre will be centred on control and system integration, artificial perception and robotics.

The Centre will occupy an area of over 8000 squared meters located nearby Madrid, and will employ around 300 staff researchers.
