ANIMATAS is a MSCA – Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions project that aims to give researchers with the necessary skills and international experience for a successful career, either in the public or the private sector. The project is an Innovative Training Network (MSCA ITN) implemented by a partnership of high profile universities, research institutions and industrial research partners that are located in 8 different countries.
Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks – ITN The ITN scheme supports joint research training and/or doctoral programmes, implemented by European partnerships of universities, research institutions, industry (incl. SMEs) and other non-academic organisations. The research training programmes are intended to provide doctoral students with excellent research skills, coupled with experience outside academia to develop their innovative capacities and employment prospects.
This project aims to train a new generation of early-stage researchers (ESRs) in the emerging area of human-machine interaction for education and is structured around 15 Individual Research Projects. During four years, 15 selected ESR’s will work within 3 main research topics:
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.

By giving researchers, the necessary skills and international experience for a successful career, either in the public or in the private sector. PhD candidates will benefit from a unique doctoral training programme covering scientific, technical and business aspects, and they will also have the opportunity to spend time experimenting their research outcomes in the wild with real users. The project implemented by a partnership of high profile universities, research institutions and industrial research partners that are located in 8 different countries.
ANIAMATS is hiring 15 PhD students to work on various exciting research topics in the scope of human-machine interaction for education in schools.
