Welcome to the European Training Network "SECURE"

Safety Enables Cooperation in Uncertain Robotic Environments


SECURE is a new Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action funded by the European Commission. It's aim is to train roboticists and research fellows on the cognitive and interaction level of robot safety. These fellows should then be able to cope with the new challenges for safety that come with the increased complexity in human work and living spaces. They also need to be familiar with safety concepts and solutions for a multitude of robotic platforms. Therefore, the SECURE network aims to train fellows on innovative scientific and technological requirements for safe human-robot interaction and will employ several of the currently best robot platforms in Europe.

The fellows are trained at six partner institutions in Europe and are supported by another five associated partners, ranging from large-scale international industrial partners to small enterprises, thus providing an optimal training environment for young researchers. 

Selected Events

ICDL-EpiRob 2019 Workshop on Personal Robotics and Secure Human-Robot Collaboration (Joint APRIL and SECURE ITN Symposium)

19-22 August 2019, Oslo, Norway

We are pleased to announce our workshop jointly organized by the SECURE and APRIL EU project fellows focusing on learning and interaction-based approaches to safe human-robot collaboration and their application to personal robotics. The workshop is co-located with ICDL-EpiRob 2019. The workshop will include research topics like: developmental approaches to robot learning, safe interaction in uncertain environments, affect and emotion modelling for safe human-robot interaction, language and non-verbal communication etc.
