Students' robot takes a trip

24 April 2013

Students from the University of Groningen are participating in the RoboCup in Magdeburg on 26-28 April. The international football competition is the most eye-catching part of the event, but the RoboCup@Home competition allows the teams to show how their inventions can aid society. The Groningen students are using Magdeburg to prepare for the world championships, which will take place in late June in Eindhoven.

The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
