Welcome to Hybrid Production Systems cluster


HPS is coming to ERF 2024!

For 11th time HPS will be part of the European Robotics Forum (ERF). This year, HPS will participate in the ERF2024 in Rimini, Italy with 2 workshops! Our workshops will feature a series of targeted presentations on the following topics:

  • Flexible materials handling and Remanufacturing [14/03/2023 at 14:30-15:40]
  • AI enabled HRC [14/03/2023 at 16:30-17:40]
  • We’re committed to making our workshops an interactive experience promoting open dialogue between our presenters and the audience on key advancements and challenges. So, we are looking forward to meeting you at our workshops during the ERF, discussing new ideas and broadening our horizons in the context of HRC!

    Are you interested in participating in the HPS Workshops as a speaker? Do you have the drive to contribute to the discussions around the HRC? Please contact us and submit your proposal.


    Efficient and Sustainable manufacturing through Hybrid Production


    Definition of roadmap for Hybrid Production Systems


    Over 31 innovative FP7, H2020 and Horizon Europe funded projects

    Who we are

    Hybrid Productions System (HPS) cluster consists of over 40 EU-funded projects (FP7, H2020, Horizon Europe) dealing with hybrid production. It promotes knowledge and experience sharing, aiming to define the roadmap for Hybrid Production Systems.

    Thematic areas

    Each year, under the HPS activities, we bring to the spotlight various thematic areas dealing with hybrid production. In 2023 the thematic areas of interest, as presented during the 10th HPS Workshop in ERF 2023, are the following:

    • Intelligent work piece handling
    • Handling systems for flexible materials
    • AI for Human-Robot Collaboration
    • Seamless Human-Robot Collaboration


    Cluster activities involve a number of community workshops, common newsletters, press releases and white papers, aiming to define the roadmap for Hybrid Production Systems.
