About me

Project manager SCIROC EU-H2020 project and the European Robotics League (ERL), that builds in previous coordination actions ROCKEU2 EU-H2020 and EURATHLON EU-FP7. 

SCIROC project is led by the University of the West of England.

The European Robotics League (ERL) - ROCKEU2 / SCIROC

The European Robotics League is a common framework for four robotics competitions: ERL Professional Service Robots, ERL Consumer Service Robots, ERL Emergency Service Robots, and the biennial competition ERL in the Smart City.

The European Robotics League local and major tournaments are based in Europe and are open to international participation. These four competitions aim at replicating consistent benchmarking results more than stating a winner of a single event.

euRathlon project

euRathlon is an outdoor robotics competition in which teams of land, underwater and flying robots are invited to work collaboratively in realistic, demanding mock emergency-response scenarios, inspired by the Fukushima disaster.


Marta graduated in Industrial Electronics Engineering from the Escola Universitària Politècnica de Mataró (EUPMT) – Tecnocampus Mataró and has a Masters in Marine Sciences in Oceanography and Marine Environmental Management from the Faculty of Biology of the University of Barcelona (UB) in collaboration with the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC).
