Intro

The RoboSoteLab project promotes the possibilities of using robotics and smart technology and the co-creation operating model that supports the use of robotics in the social and healthcare sector.

The aim is to create capabilities and preconditions for the emergence of new technological solutions and to promote the introduction of new kinds of technology. The project enables companies to apply digital solutions and test the development phase in testing and experimentation environments corresponding to reality in the social and healthcare sector.

The project will design and implement a research, development, and innovation environment that utilizes robotics and related smart technology.

Project duration: 1.1.2024–31.12.2025
