Welcome to the International Foundation of Robotics Research

The goal of IFRR is promoting scientific excellence in robotics research. IFRR establishes the theoretical foundations and technology as a basis for its ever expanding robotics applications, with an emphasis on its potential role to benefit humans. As a volunteer-driven non-profit organization, we organize a series of select and high-quality symposia and support new emerging researchers and trends in robotics research.
