The robots Eddie and Elias welcomed the German Foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier at the CoTeSys Central Robotics Laboratory. Steinmeier came to visit a group of women engineers who participate, after their maternity leave, in a training seminar to alleviate their return to the job market. The seminar took place in the CCRL. The qualification program was set up by TU München together with BPW Germany e.V. and industry partners.  Eddie and ELIAS had their big moments: ELIAS served Steinmeier with water, Eddie demonstrated a mechanical smile when he grasped a cup successfully.
