On Monday 4th of September 2017 the Kick-off meeting of the project Centre of Excellence for Autonomous and Cooperative Robotic Systems - ACROSS took place at UNIZG FER.

ACROSS project passed the first phase at the H2020-WIDESPREAD-2016-2017 call (type of action Coordinated and Support Action). The project is implemented in a strategic partnership as a long-term joint venture between the UNIZG FER, the KTH Royal Institute of Technology and the Innovation Centre Nikola Tesla - ICENT. 

Out of a total of 208 projects submitted to the European Commission public call, 30 projects from 12 countries for financing the first phase were adopted, which concerned the development of business plans of centres of excellence. The ACROSS project is the only accepted project in the first phase of Teaming from Croatia. Coordinator of this project is Professor Ivan Petrović from UNIZG FER, and the first phase (1.9.2017. – 31.8.2018) is supported by the EU with a little bit less than 400.000,00 EUR.

The overall objective of the project is to create a Centre of Excellence for Autonomous and Cooperative Robotic Systems in Croatia (ACROSS CoE), which will be at the forefront of research and innovation of novel methodologies and advanced engineering approaches in the targeted domains. To achieve the overall objective, the proposal focuses on long-term objectives for Teaming Phase 2 and on one-year objective for Teaming Phase 1. If passed to the second phase ACROSS CoE will be supported by EU with additional 15 million EUR for 7 years.

ACROSS CoE involves several UNIZG FER laboratories including LABUST.
