The Robot-CH association contributes to the promotion of robotics in Switzerland; among other activities, it organizes or supports various robotics competitions including the national qualifications of the international Eurobot championship. The latter is specifically aimed at apprentices, student-engineers and robotics enthusiasts, typically between the ages of 16 and 30.
The Robot-CH association contributes to disseminate knowledge in robotics to the public, professionals, schools, clubs and companies as well as to promote the image of robotics and technical sciences. It is a non-profit association.
The "SwissEurobot Open" Cup then determines each year the three Swiss teams that will participate in the conquest of the Eurobot championship title, in which some 60 teams from more than twenty countries take part. SwissEurobot was launched in 1998 as the "Swiss Robotics Cup" and has always been open to teams from other countries who take the opportunity to raise their level of preparation before the international final. Eurobot brings together young people who have worked intensively while showing their human qualities and who are motivated by the sharing of knowledge, the pleasure of contacts and friendship.
In Switzerland, between 11 and 25 teams, depending on the year, take part in this international championship by playing the qualification phases, i.e. up to 12 matches in two days. The "SwissEurobot Open" cup takes place every year; often in a different region, and now in principle anchored in Yverdon-les-Bains where it is organized by Robot-CH with the financial and/or practical support of the institutional partners of the Association which are the HEIG-VD, the City and the Canton (North Vaudois Region) as well as media and industrial sponsors.
