The DexROV consortium got together in Brussels for the mid-term review this month. Partners demonstrated their progress, confirming that the project is on track to meet its ambitious goals.

The DexROV project combines advances in robotics, manipulation, teleoperations and force feedback technologies to create a service system for Europe and the world. Focusing on cost efficiency and safety, the project has the potential to open up underwater activities for a wide range of consumers in industry and academia.

Partners and the European Commission’s project officer all positively expressed their impressions of DexROV’s progress so far as well as their optimism for its future success.

As the official communications partner for DexROV, EJR-Quartz showcased our DexROV portfolio from the past 18 months. Our achievements included DexROV’s visual identity, launching a website and designing a package of materials for partners to share the project with the scientific community, industry and future customers. EJR-Quartz also provided detailed breakdowns of audience habits and origins for the consortium and unpacked the communication process.

We also took the opportunity to film an upcoming short video on the project. With partners spread out across Europe, we make the most of every opportunity when they come together. Taking advantage of collaboration opportunities and liaising with companies across Europe is one of the fun challenges of this project’s communication efforts. Filming in particular meant we were able to involve our talented colleagues from the Leiden office who got to do the things they are passionate about: writing and producing. We look forward to sharing this video and other project updates and milestones in the months to come.
