Background: £5m Funding Competition for Robotics & Autonomous Systems

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).

We 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.
