As the research and development work of this HORIZON-2020 project is done in parallel in different European partner facilities, integration weeks take place regularly. They serve to synchronize and test the sensors, functional models and controls. The international research collaboration aims to develop surgical robots that use a wide range of sensory perceptions to autonomously perform complex surgical tasks.

«FAROS» a consortium of four universities: KU Leuven in Belgium, which is coordinating the project and driving the work in non-visual sensing, Sorbonne University in France, with a strong role in robotics, King's College London in England, which will lead the development of artificial intelligence, and Balgrist University Hospital / University of Zurich, which will work clinically, experimentally and interdisciplinary to ridge robotics, computer science and clinical research. The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. «FAROS» started with a three-year term on January 1, 2021.
