As part of their “corporate social responsibility”, more and more companies are making a contribution to society. They use their privileged position in business and politics to tackle problem areas - especially those that affect themselves or their environment. Targeted CSR measures not only have a positive impact on the company's image, but also have a lasting effect on the industry and thus on the company's success.

“Google has been working for many years and with many initiatives for the promotion of information technology in education and training as well as open source software. We are very pleased to place our commitment to both goals on an even broader footing with `Open Roberta´. I wish the Fraunhofer Institute IAIS and the Roberta teachers every success with this initiative and hope that together we will be able to inspire even more girls and boys with enthusiasm for robotics, software development and computer science.“
