In this paper we describe the motivations and the aim ofthe EURON-2 research project ``\underline{P}hysical \underline{H}uman-\underline{R}obot \underline{I}nteraction in Anthropic \underline{Dom}ains'' (PRHIDOM). This project, which moves along the lines indicated by the 1$^{st}$ IARP/IEEE-RAS Workshop on Technical Challenge for Dependable Robots in Human Environments \cite{iarp01}, is about ``charting'' the new ``territory'' of physical Human-Robot Interaction (pHRI). To ensure these goals, the integration competences in control, robotics, design and realization of mechanical systems, human-machine interaction, and in safety-dependability of mechatronic systems is required. The PHRIDOM Consortium is composed of 5 partners from 3 different European countries.
