The CREATE-DIH Research Consortium @ RO-MAN 2022 with the RIMA Network

On September 2, 2022, the CREATE-DIH Research Consortium will hold the workshop "Transferring innovation and closing the market gap in robotics at the 31st IEEE International Conference on Robot & Human Interactive Communication" (RO-MAN 2022). The RIMA and CREATE cases."

The objective is to present the services provided as Digital Innovation Hub (DIH) in the field of robotics, illustrating its key role in the transfer of innovation and business support within the Robotics for Inspection and Maintenance (RIMA) project of which CREATE-DIH is the only Italian partner.


RIMA is a European network of 13 DIHs born in 2019 from a three-year project funded under the Horizon 2020 research and innovation program. The goal of the project is to accelerate the implementation of robotic technologies for infrastructure inspection and maintenance (I&M) in six key market sectors: energy, oil & gas, water supply, transport, civil engineering and infrastructure hubs and it is a technology transfer project targeting small and medium-sized and slightly larger companies.


RIMA through two open calls between 2019 and 2020 funded and technically supported 51 cross-border experiments involving European small and medium-sized enterprises with a total amount of € 8.1 million.


The CREATE-DIH team, with professors Bruno Siciliano and Luigi Villani together with project manager Jonathan van der Meer, will show the contributions in terms of services, expertise and tools ― offered through the robotics PRISMA Lab partner of the CREATE Consortium ― to implement knowledge transfer between universities and industry, while some representatives of the European RIMA network, including engineer Panagiotis Karagiannis from the University of Patras, will have the opportunity to present the results, experiments and methodologies used.
