Companies, educational institutions as well as research centers participating in this week organize interesting programs to promote their organizations and robots to the general public. An important goal of this week is to educate the public about the role of robotics in society.
The various events are organized by local research facilities, scientists, educational institutions and anyone involved in the development of robotics.
