|the Europarque in Santa Maria da Feira, Aveiro, Portugal, but due to the pandemic situation of Covid-19, the Portuguese Robotics Society and the Organizing Committee decided to hold this year's edition online.|
This is the 20th edition of an event that has been held annually in Portugal since 2001. It aims at promoting Science and Technology among students from the 1st grade to high school and higher education, as well as among the general-public, through robot competitions. The Festival, which takes place every year in a different city, also includes an international conference, sponsored by IEEE, where national and international researchers present their latest work in the field of Robotics. With the due exception of last year, the edition of which had to be cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic situation, the event has grown enormously since the 1st edition, both in terms of the number of teams, participants and visitors, being currently an initiative of the Portuguese Society of Robotics (http://www.sprobotica.pt/).
