Project European Robotic Surgery (EuRoSurge) is a Coordination and support action funded by the European Commission. This Coordination Action aims at developing a conceptual integration platform for Computer and Robot Aided Surgery (CRAS) research and manufacturing, based on the following actions:

  • Identification of the key European players in surgical robotics, (both technological players, skilled end-users and EU funded projects)
  • Identification of the key European players in cognitive sciences relevant to surgery
  • Creation of a glossary/ontology for cognitive surgical robotics
  • Specification of a reference architecture for cognitive surgical robotics
  • Formulation of procedures for validation of surgical robots and their modules
  • Identification of non-technical roadblocks, e.g. patents, ethical and legal aspects
