The EDLRIS project focuses on the development and implementation of a professional, standardized, internationally accepted training- and certification- system for Robotics and Artificial Intelligence. Target groups are trainers (e.g. teachers or mentors of clubs/societies) and trainees (e.g. students and youths). The basic concept is similar to the well-established European Computer Driving License ECDL. In order to facilitate a broad acceptance, an advisory board comprising members from industry, educational institutions and public bodies is involved from start-up to the completion of the project.
