Innovate UK

Innovate UK is to invest in innovative projects, to encourage and stimulate the development of demonstrators of robotics and artificial intelligence (RAI) technologies for extreme and challenging environments.

This is the first phase of the demonstrator programme. It is for projects focusing on technical feasibility studies of individual technologies, systems or subsystems for off-shore energy, nuclear energy, space and deep mining applications.

The second phase of this programme will focus on experimental developments of fully-integrated systems. These will be tested and demonstrated in realistic extreme environments in some of the UK’s world-class test facilities.

Proposals should clearly identify the operational scenario for extreme and challenging environments, in which the RAI technologies or sub/systems would be used, as well as the risks and potential benefits.

This programme is one of 3 separate elements (use-inspired research hubs, collaborative research and development and demonstrator programmes) that will be delivered under this Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund activity.

KTN are organising briefing and brokerage events on the 21st June, in London and the 27th June, in Birmingham.  Applicants are strongly advised to attend.

There will also be a webcast held on the 21st June for those not able to attend.
