A consortium of eight universities, led by the University of Birmingham and including the University of Bristol, Bristol Robotics Lab, University of Lincoln, Edinburgh Centre for Robotics, Queen Mary University London, University of Essex and Lancaster University, has secured £42 million of new investment to fund the National Centre for Nuclear Robotics (NCNR). NCNR is developing state-of-the-art robotics, sensing and AI technologies to address the major societal challenges posed by nuclear environments and materials.
The £42 million initiative has been co-funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, research institutions, industrial collaborators and investment partners.
Synthotech, as industrial partners, are delighted to be part of this new venture and look forward to working closely with the universities and other partners to deliver the centre’s vision.
Wez little and Simon Langdale will be leading Synthotech's involvement in this project, if you would like more information about the National Centre for Nuclear Robotics please contact us here or click here for Birmingham Universities press release.
