The project Be + BeRobot, funded by the BMBF, analyzes robotic support systems in the care environment. Technical, nursing and social scientific and ethical standards for reasoning and assessment are developed for people in need of care. The possibilities and limits of robots for nursing are being interdisciplinary researched. Project partners are the Osnabrück University, the SIBIS Institute for social research and project consultancy, the OFFIS – Institute for Information Technology, the German Caritas Association (registered charity) and the University of Siegen. The project at the University of Siegen is led by Jun.-Prof. Dr. Claudia Müller. The focus is on practice-based and participatory research. Established methods and tools of socio-informatics are applied by user-oriented studies and embedded in nursing science. The project started in November 2019 and last until October 2022.
