15:00 pm – 16:00 pm
This event will be live streamed via webcast
Join our upcoming Driving the Electric Revolution “Engage with…” webinar and hear from the Lincoln Institute for Agri-Food Technology.

The University of Lincoln is one of the UK leading developers of agri-robotic technologies. The Lincoln Institute for Agri-Food Technology specialises in robotic systems to support autonomous crop harvesting and electrification of farming. These are technologies which are of crucial and urgent importance post-Covid-19.


The sector needs robotic systems to reduce reliance on manual labour. In addition, farming has a high dependency on off-road and typically diesel-powered vehicles. The sector needs to transition to electric powered vehicles; this may involve a move towards smaller fleets of lightweight electric-powered vehicles or larger machines.


The webinar will highlight opportunities for the UK manufacturing sector to engage in this transformation of the food production system.


Engage with Lincoln Institute for Agri-Food Technology and hear from Prof Simon Pearson (Director of LIAT/Professor of Agri-Food Technology) about:

  • Who they are and what they do
  • Their application of PEMD and robotic systems in agriculture
  • Their challenges and future supply chain requirements, with a view of seeding future partnerships/collaborations/projects
