£5m of Robotics Funding from Innovate UK

9 Sep 2016

£5m of investment funding is available from Innovate UK and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), to encourage innovative applications of robotics and autonomous systems (RAS).  

The commercial prospects of RAS projects are obvious in today’s society. Commercially viable RAS projects often need to combine several different technologies, and this investment funding aims to encourage collaboration in order to speed up RAS development towards demonstration.

Project Proposals

Proposals should show how your project speeds up the development of RAS technology towards demonstration and commercialism. They may focus on:

  • Technical feasibility
  • Industrial research
  • Experimental development

Projects should:

  • Last between 6-15 months
  • Range in size between £50,000 and £500,000
  • Be led by a business
  • Be collaborative if costs rise above £100,000

Be sure to register before noon on the 19th of October, and apply before the 26th October 2016!
