Welcome to the EuRoSurge Project website!

Project European Robotic Surgery (EuRoSurge) is a Coordination and support action funded by the European Commission in the FP7-ICT-2011-7. Project duration: 1 October 2011 – 31 September 2013.

This Coordination Action aims at developing a conceptual integration platform for Computer and Robot Aided Surgery (CRAS) research and manufacturing, based on the following actions:

  1. Identification of the key European players in surgical robotics, (both technological players, skilled end-users and EU funded projects);
  2. Identification of the key European players in cognitive sciences relevant to surgery;
  3. Creation of a glossary/ontology for cognitive surgical robotics;
  4. Specification of a reference architecture for cognitive surgical robotics;
  5. Formulation of procedures for validation of surgical robots and their modules;
  6. Identification of non-technical roadblocks, e.g. patents, ethical and legal aspects.
