The basic instrument of RIMA to financially support the development and deployment of robotics I&M applications will provide one type of eligible action: Robotics Innovation Experiments (RIEs).

Robotics Innovation Experiments (RIE) consist of developing, testing and validating the technical and economic viability of a robotic-based representative model or prototype system to be applied in ‘Target Use Domain’ operational environment. Beneficiaries to progress from TRL5 or TRL6 to TRL7.
