COVR AWARDS ARE THE HEART OF THE COVR PROJECT.
THE PURPOSE OF THE COVR AWARDS IS TO HELP COBOTEERS IN COMPLETING, ANALYZING AND VALIDATING SAFETY FOR THEIR COBOT SYSTEM OR COMPONENT BY APPLYING THE COVR TOOLKIT AND PERFORMING THE NECESSARY TESTS TO VALIDATE THE SAFETY.
Upon winning a COVR Award, the coboteer is invited into the facilities of the nearest COVR partner where COVR experts will help the coboteer in all stages of the safety assessment and validation process so they are certain that their cobot has an adequate level of safety when the Award project ends.
The coboteers can apply for Awards up to €60.000, either alone or in a consortium teaming up with other coboteers to e.g. build a cobot system using a new type of gripper and safety system.
The Award funding can e.g. be spent on maturing the cobot system, developing the safety system or something completely different as long as the COVR experts are involved in the assessment, testing and validation phases of the project.
Upon finishing the Award project, the COVR toolkit will be improved with the knowledge gained through the Award process.
