This chapter presents an overview of European research projects that are involved with research and development of wearable robots, with an emphasis on exoskeletons for the legs. The structure and goals of public European Research funding are explained, the general directions of the recent research in wearable robots are summarized, and a more detailed overview of a selection of the larger European R&D projects in this field is provided. It covers exoskeletons for assistive use as well as for training, for medical as well as for service applications.
