Welcome to SHERO

The SHERO project is funded under the Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) programme of the European Commission (grant agreement ID 828818). The radical vision of the SHERO project is the ambitious development of fully-autonomous self-healing soft robotic devices, by integrating engineered functional materials, smart sensing and active actuation and control capabilities into soft robots.

What is FET?

Whether it’s about green cities, robots, new materials, or cancer therapies, countless ground-breaking opportunities which can shape our society are opening up. With the European Innovation Council, Europe is now calling out to innovators, scientists and researchers who can tackle the issues-at-large using new and innovative technologies that are not yet available in the market.
