Information for visitors

Teams from all over Austria take part in the RoboCupJunior Austrian Open to qualify for the RoboCupJunior European Open and the World Championship in the Soccer, Rescue, and OnStage disciplines.

As always, teams from abroad are cordially invited and their participation demonstrates the international nature of RoboCupJunior.

In three disciplines, the teams of students aged between 10 and 19 will play soccer with their self-built and programmed robots, navigate through disaster scenarios with assistant robots, or perform exciting human-robot interactions on stage with their robots, some of which are costumed.

Interested parties of all ages are cordially invited to cheer on the teams and be fascinated by autonomous robotics during the supporting program. Admission is free!
