Global Robotic Forum

SIDO reçoit le Global Robotic Cluster pour son congrès mondial, en partenariat avec Coboteam

 

Coboteam, le cluster robotique d’Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, a décroché l’organisation du congrès mondial du GRC (Global Robotic Cluster). Il se tiendra lors du SIDO à Lyon. Retour sur ce succès.

 

En 2017 était officiellement lancé le GRC (Global Robotic Cluster). Cette fédération de clusters robotiques a été créée sous l’égide du cluster REPA de Daegu (Corée du Sud) et des 4 autres plus importants clusters mondiaux dont Coboteam en France.

 

Unique au monde par sa structure et son fonctionnement, elle se veut être le lieu de réflexion et de promotion de la robotique, proche du terrain et indépendante de toute organisation gouvernementale. Elle s’est donné 3 objectifs majeurs :

 

  • Favoriser l’émergence d’une robotique collaborative, proche de l’humain dans le cadre du déploiement de la quatrième révolution industrielle,
  • Faciliter de manière efficace la réalisation de projets internationaux en assurant la relation entre les membres de différents clusters,
  • Être une source d’inspiration et de partage de connaissance au service des politiques relatives à l’industrie des robots intelligents.

Aujourd’hui, le GRC est la plus grande fédération mondiale de clusters robotique avec 20 membres. Cette véritable « agora » de la robotique est en croissance rapide et regroupe plus de 2 500 entreprises, de la startup au groupe international réparties sur 22 fuseaux horaires (ce qui ne facilite pas toujours les webinaires !)

 

Le Global Robotic Forum se déroule tous les ans à Daegu à la fin de l’automne et, depuis 2020, des congrès spécifiques sont organisés par les grandes zones économiques pour l’ensemble des membres. Avec la COVID19, les dernières (Asie-Pacifique et Amérique) se sont tenues en distanciel.

 

Celui du SIDO Lyon, sera le tout premier à se tenir en physique en dehors de celui réalisé en Corée du Sud. Le choix d’Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes s’est imposé après un vote mémorable des clusters à 3heures du matin en novembre 2020 (décalage horaire oblige). C’est la reconnaissance internationale de l’importance de la filière robotique dans la Région plus connue à l’étranger qu’en France !

 

La venue des représentants des différents clusters se structurera autour du SIDO mais comprendra en amont la visite du Campus numérique Régional et en aval la visite de divers acteurs de la filière robotique et Intelligence artificielle à Lyon, Grenoble et Annecy.
