The IEEE RAS Chapter was created on 4 October 2005, following a petition signed by 14 Portuguese members of the IEEE RAS.

Its main objectives are to promote research, education, entrepreneurship and public interest in Robotics and Automation in Portugal. This is achieved through the support to the organization of scientific conferences and workshops, research and educational robot competitions, meetings between companies and academia, and sessions of Science and Technology dissemination to the citizens.
