The Committee of the UK-RAS Network met during the 2020 UK Robotics Week (https://www.ukras.org/robotics-week/) to discuss, amongst other items on collaboration, partnerships and digital infrastructure, the activity ongoing at a National and International level on Robotics and Autonomous Systems this year that is showcased during the Robotics Week. This year the Covid-19 disruption has moved all activities online but this was a good opportunity to learn more about and celebrate the successes of the Network this past year (link to video: https://youtu.be/Uou_RHj8EvA)
The UK-RAS Network committee wished everybody a Happy Robotics Week! (https://twitter.com/UKRobotics/status/1276806236709756930)
The Network brings together the UK’s core academic capabilities in robotics innovation under national coordination and encourages academic and industry collaboration to accelerate the development and adoption of RAS.
The EPSRC UK Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) Network (https://www.ukras.org/) was established in March 2015 with the mission to provide academic leadership in RAS, expand collaboration with industry and integrate and coordinate activities at eight Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) funded RAS capital facilities, four Centres of Doctoral Training (CDTs) of which the CDT in Embedded Intelligence is one of them, and with 30 partner universities across the UK.
