Hungary to host Europe’s first World Robot Olympiad

20 December 2017

Hungary has been announced as the host for the 2019 World Robot Olympiad (WRO), a competition that will see more than 3,000 participants descend on the city of Győr in a bid to prove their design and engineering prowess.

Students aged between 7 and 25 will be tasked with building robots which can navigate obstacles courses, take on unique challenges, or win a game of robot football.

It will be the first WRO tournament to take place in Europe since the competition was founded in 2004.

Hungarian team InnoRobot-X from Budapest University of Technology and Economics were among those taking part in this year’s Olympiad in Costa Rica, winning second place in the Advanced Robotics Challenge category.
