Following the success of ISCF Robots for a Safer World Challenge with over 100 Innovate UK projects funded and robots deployed under the ocean, into space and helping to decommission nuclear sites, Innovate UK are now expanding their vision for service robotics, how they are tested and proved to be safe and effective.

Webinar recording is now available



We will be hosting 3 identical workshops on 31st January, 2nd and 3rd February 2022 to capture your views on the additional activities that could take place at the Service Robotics Proving Ground Facilities. The thoughts you share with us in these workshops will also be disseminated at the ‘Shaping the National Service Robotics Proving Ground Facilities’ feedback event on Thursday 10th February 2022.

NB: Please register for only 1 workshop of your choice and the feedback event on 10 February 2022 will also be automatically included.
