UK Robotics Week: 25th June - 1st July

UK Robotics Week has something for everyone. It is a week to learn about the current state-of-the-art robotic technology, discuss the role of robots and artificial intelligence in our lives, and to inspire the next generation of designers and engineers. 

The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and their UKRAS Network has successfully developed the concept of UK Robotics Week which will inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers to push the boundaries further. 
 
The focus of this weeklong series of events and activities, to be held annually during the last week of June, is to shine a spotlight on the UK’s technology leadership in robotics and autonomous systems, and to engage the nation’s schools, colleges and universities in developing the digital skills needed to drive the UK’s future economy.
 
The Robotics Week is intended to act as a forum for discussing the technological, commercial, legal, ethical and social aspects of robotics. During the week, there will be a wide range of events from symposia, workshops, hackathons, public lectures and competitions throughout the country. It adds focus to a thriving programme of existing robotics activities that take place throughout the year. By linking to other key events in the robotics calendar, it aims to ensure that robotics remains high on the agenda as one of the transformative technologies of today and tomorrow.
