Eurexpo (Lyon)

Robotics offers a great potential for innovation and new perspectives in many fields of the economy:

  • Industry,
  • Artificial Intelligence,
  • Services, Health, Environment, Security, etc...

The development of these new markets and their access is an issue for many of the players in the robotics industry in France, mainly made up of small and medium-sized companies.

The analysis of current and future needs in robotics, the promotion and development of the technological and services offer, the set-up of public interest actions and collaborations between the actors are the primary objectives of the General States of Robotics organized annually by the General Directorate for Entreprises of the Ministry of Economy and Finance.
