    Become our partner in 2019!

    Team HSR Enhanced is aiming at participation in two main events in 2019: CYBATHLON Wheelchair Series Japan, and CYBATHLON Experience at Swiss Handicap Exhibition. Both are important milestones on the road to CYBATHLON 2020 in Zurich. Especially for the race in Japan, the logistics cost to airlift our race wheelchair and the expenses for flights and hotels are taking a heavy toll on our budget. In order to close the gap, we have designed new Sponsoring Packages for 2019 and ask for your support:

    Join us as a partner and become a part of HSR Enhanced on these endeavors. Support the team with high visibility for you and your company. To make it possible for smaller budgets, our Patron category already starts at CHF 150. It is followed by Bronze for CHF 1'500, Silver for CHF 4'000 and Gold for CHF 9'000 with increasing benefits for you. And if you are aiming for more, our Enhanced sponsoring partnership guarantees you highest visibility and insights into the team.

    Make sure you have a look at all the benefits for sponsoring partners in our documents, and please contact Christian Bermes for further information.

    HSR Enhanced at World Robot Summit 2018 in Tokyo

    From 17th-21st October 2018, during CYBATHLON Experience at the World Robot Summit, HSR Enhanced will roll out the new stair climbing module for CYBATHLON 2020. It has been developed in a recent thesis work by our B.Sc. student Kevin Bürgi, and refined by the team’s engineers from ILT. At WRS, we will be part of the CYBATHLON exhibition booth and perform two live demos per day climbing the six steps of the CYBATHLON 2020 obstacle ‘Stairs’ up and down. We are seizing this opportunity to be present at a leading robotics trade fair in Japan, and to participate in two workshops on inclusion and assistance technology. 

    Moreover, this is a great opportunity to present our sponsors on an international stage in Japan, the homeland of robotics. Hence, I am actively asking for your involvement to make this initially unbudgeted mission of HSR Enhanced happen! FAULHABER has already upgraded to GOLD Sponsoring, and ANTRIMON Group has upgraded to SILVER Sponsoring.
