The Inspection and Upkeep (I&M) Trade represents a big financial exercise spanning throughout a number of sectors reminiscent of power, oil & gasoline, water provide, transport, civil engineering, and infrastructure. RIMA venture goals at bringing collectively Digital Innovation Hubs and Facilitators working underneath a typical community that enable them to hitch forces and competences in selling I&M robotics in Europe.

The BIS Analysis initiatives’ evaluation of the Inspection and Upkeep Robotic Trade forecasts that the I&M market will develop at a big CAGR of 12.73% on the idea of worth from 2020 to 2025. In 2019, Europe dominated the 40% of the worldwide inspection and upkeep robotic market (BIS322A, Mar 2020). Though the European Union hosts many of the I&M robotics supply – being France, Germany, and Spain (and U.Okay. till 2021 Brexit) the main manufacturing nations, there may be nonetheless a bottleneck connecting this supply to the market and excessive potential functions. Due to this fact, it’s the goal of RIMA Community to bridge that hole and enhance the connection between key stakeholders.

The RIMA Community

RIMA (Robotics for Inspection and MAintenance) began in 2019 as a European Union’s Horizon2020 initiative for bringing collectively Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs) and Facilitators working underneath a typical community to hitch forces and competences in selling I&M robotics. The venture consortium consists of 23 companions together with Universities, Trade associations and analysis institutes.

The RIMA venture acquired € 16 Million for establishing a community of Digital Innovation Hubs (DIH) and business associations to assist the uptake of robotics – and assist European small and medium-sized firms (SMEs) to develop novel options for various business sectors.

The Digital Innovation Hubs supply key acceleration providers for firms. Linked to organisations concerned in analysis and innovation actions, they provide experience in robotics, gear, and providers relevant for, on this case, I&M operations. The Facilitator organisations have the connections and community to achieve a broad set of industries of their domains of experience.

The RIMA Community consists of 13 Digital Innovation Hubs (DIH) with an unlimited expertise within the subject of robotics and is now accepting new DIHs with the aim to increase the community. All the knowledge and speak to factors can be found on the RIMA Community neighborhood platform.

Coaching programs

The RIMA coaching framework focuses on growing using digital expertise and information of robotics throughout the I&M area, amongst a variety of individuals – from college students, by means of the present workforce or managers who want to know the significance and impact of digitisation, and start-up know-how growth firms that want particular data and assist for getting their know-how to market.

RIMA affords particular trainings on the sector of I&M in matters reminiscent of financing, present and upcoming robotics applied sciences, optimisation, innovation administration, and dealing with robots or with digital actuality (VR) and simulation.

Info on current and future coaching programs is accessible within the RIMA neighborhood and shortly within the RIMA YouTube Channel.

Cross-border experiments

RIMA has supported financially and technically 50 cross-border experiments involving European Small and Medium-sized enterprises by means of two Open Name rounds – the primary one in 2019 and the second in 2020 – with a complete quantity of 8.1M€.

The profitable candidates have acquired equity-free funding for Expertise switch and growth in I&M robotic functions. We’ll current in future articles some examples of success tales funded by means of RIMA reminiscent of INOWATT, Pipeye RIE, TANGO, ROBUCLEAN, RPIMUS, ACIDRONES, and RAHIP. Keep tuned!

RIMA Community on the European Robotics Discussion board 2022

The European Robotics Discussion board (ERF) is without doubt one of the most influential occasions for the robotics and synthetic intelligence neighborhood in Europe. This yr the occasion takes place from the twenty eighth to the thirtieth of June in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Within the session of the twenty ninth of June, “DIH as driver for progressive experimentation: The RIMA Community case”, the RIMA venture will supply a holistic method on the sector of DIH-supported experimentation in robotics to permit the viewers to assemble greatest practices, inspiration, robotic at I&M literacy, reference to the EU DIH Community, and worth propositions to include to their service catalogue.

Extra data could be discovered on the ERF2022 web site or you possibly can contact RIMA’s Communication lead Juan Antonio Pavón Losada.

Be part of the RIMA Community neighborhood

The RIMA Community affords a world on-line neighborhood that brings collectively know-how suppliers, service suppliers, asset homeowners and operators, with Digital Innovation Hubs and Facilitators. The RIMA Community neighborhood platform is a spot to collaborate, share data on I&M robotics and hold updated on RIMA actions. You’ll be able to be part of the RIMA neighborhood at no cost right here.
