£5m Funding Competition for Robotics & Autonomous Systems: Dissemination & Brokerage Events

Innovate UK and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) are to invest up to £5 million in innovation projects to encourage innovative applications and stimulate new partnerships across robotics and autonomous systems (RAS).

They are looking for innovators to develop new solutions to existing or emerging problems. Commercially viable RAS solutions often need to combine different technologies to achieve the required performance. This competition aims to support and speed up this work.


KTN are hosting three regional dissemination events for the competition, in Coventry, Manchester and Southampton.

In the morning, Innovate UK will outline the competition brief and application details on the £5m funding for Robotics & Autonomous Systems Applications. KTN will run networking opportunities and a company pitch session.

In the afternoon, RAS SIG will run a workshop, collaboration building and a discovery session to identify community needs and LEP opportunities on creating greater collaboration in the region, highlighting Smart Specialisation and identifying possible opportunities for funding bids.
