Provided that the epidemiological conditions will allow it and the State’s decrees will make it practically feasible, the Cyprus Computer Society intends to organise the 4th Robotex Pancyprian Robotics Competition that will take place on November 15th to December 6th 2020.
With the University of Cyprus and the Cyprus' Youth Board as co-organizers, Robotex Cyprus will return for its fourth edition in a different format, following the COVD-19 protocols.

Robotex Cyprus addresses students of all ages and adults and admission is free of charge. The winning teams will be able to participate in the next Robotex International, from which last year's winners returned to Cyprus with plenty of awards in their luggage!
Interested teams are invited to build robots with the help of a coach-trainer, in order to compete in the four challenge categories of the competition, using the robotic platforms Engino, Lego, Edison, Arduino
The event will be organized under the auspices of H.E the President of the Republic of Cyprus Mr Nicos Anastasiades and has been approved by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports and Youth and the Digital Champion of Cyprus.
Robotex Roadshow 2020 takes place in collaboration with Cyta which is the longtime strategic partner of CCS and the company XM which is the technology partner. Bank of Cyprus also participates as Youth Supporter, EKO as platinum sponsor, Research and Innovation Foundation and Neapolis University as gold sponsors and other companies as sponsors.
