US National Robotics Week 2010

The first annual National Robotics Week will be held from April 10-18, recognizing robotics technology as a pillar of 21st century American innovation, highlighting its growing importance in a wide variety of application areas, and emphasizing its ability to inspire technology education. National Robotics Week is the result of a 2009 effort by leading universities and companies to create a “national roadmap” for robotics technology, which was initially unveiled at a May 2009 briefing by academic and industry leaders to the Congressional Caucus on Robotics. U.S. Representative Mike Doyle (PA-14), co-chair of the caucus, and other members have submitted a formal resolution asking Congress to support the designation of the second full week in April as National Robotics Week.During National Robotics Week, numerous public events and activities will be held in cities across the country.
The effort is organized by iRobot Corp. and The Technology Collaborative, a Pittsburgh-based non-profit economic development organization.
