WearRAcon Europe


WearRAcon Europe is the European edition of the WearRAcon Conference, organized bi-annually by the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation (IPA) and the University of Stuttgart’s Institute of Industrial Manufacturing and Management (IFF), in close collaboration with the global exoskeleton interest group, the Wearable Robotics Association (WearRA) in Phoenix, Arizona (USA).


It aims to present European aspects of the latest innovations in wearable robotics, with a particular focus on occupational exoskeletons, and foster interactions between wearable robotics professionals, end-users from the industry, experts from the academia, and representatives from governmental agencies.


The 2021 edition saw the first edition of the EXOWORKATHLON® live-study, which took place in parallel to the event.


WearRAcon Europe 2023 will take place during the A+A Show on October 25-26, 2023, in Duesseldorf.
The finalized program of the event is avaible at A+A.


Call For Poster

The 3rd edition of the WearRAcon Europe seeks submissions for the poster session, with contributions describing recently completed work, preliminary results of work in progress or successful systems and applications in all areas related to occupational exoskeleton use cases.
