Project Overview 

ANIMATAS (MSCA – ITN – 2017 - 765955 2) is a H2020 Marie Sklodowska Curie European Training Network funded by Horizon 2020 (the European Union’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation), coordinated by Sorbonne Université - SU (Paris, France).

Scientific and technical objectives

ANIMATAS focuses on the following objectives:

1) Exploration of the fundamental questions on the perception by people of the interconnections between robots or virtual characters’ appearances and behaviours.

 2) Development of new social learning mechanisms that can deal with different types of human intervention and allow robots and virtual characters to learn in an unconstrained manner.

3) Development of new approaches for robots and virtual characters’ personalised adaptation to human users in unstructured and dynamically evolving social interactions.

15 early-stage researchers (ESR) positions for a minimum of 36 months are available within the EU-funded Marie Slodowska-Curie ITN ANIMATAS. Successful candidates will participate in the network’s training activities offered by the 15 academic and industrial partners.
