ANIMATAS (MSCA – ITN – 2017 – 765955 2) is a H2020 Marie Sklodowska Curie European Training Network funded by Horizon 2020 (the European Union’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation), coordinated by Sorbonne Université – SU (Paris, France).

The ANIMATAS project  focuses on the following objectives:

1) Exploration of the fundamental questions on the perception by people of the interconnections between robots or virtual characters’ appearances and behaviours.

2) Development of new social learning mechanisms that can deal with different types of human intervention and allow robots and virtual characters to learn in an unconstrained manner.

3) Development of new approaches for robots and virtual characters’ personalised adaptation to human users in unstructured and dynamically evolving social interactions.
