Created in 1998, Eurobot is an international amateur robotics contest open to teams of young people, organised either in student projects or in independent clubs. Eurobot takes place in Europe but also welcomes countries from other continents within the limit of three teams per country. Countries with more than three national teams have to organize a national qualification, at the conclusion of which three teams will be qualified for the international final.
Each year the Eurobot challenge is themed. The Eurobot 2015 theme is "Movies" and the task is to pick and place elements to score points.
In 2015, 27 countries, represented by 400 teams, are involved in this science and technology contest, through its national qualifications and the world final.
The world final is in Yverdon-Les-Bains, Switzerland, 22-24 May 2015.
