Invest Bristol & Bath is proud to have supported the creation of the West of England Robotics Network alongside our partners South Gloucestershire Council.
The network is an open access, community network of roboticists in the West of England – for everyone interested in researching, developing or deploying Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) technologies, products and services. They organise meetings, events and networking for the region’s RAS community and welcome individuals from all RAS backgrounds, disciplines and interests.
The Network is run by Bristol Robotics Laboratory to support the formation and development of RAS supply chains and companies and contribute to growing the region’s High Tech Cluster.
Useful robotic solutions are rapidly becoming reality and will bring economic and social benefits to all of us. Founded on a long and distinguished history as a hub of entrepreneurial excellence and technological innovation, with iconic examples, such as Brunel’s Suspension Bridge and Concorde, the West of England has strengths in Creative & Digital, Advanced Engineering and Aerospace, Low Carbon, Healthcare and High-Tech sectors. The network aims to bring together people from these and other interested communities – to create and share opportunities in developing RAS markets.
The Network will meet from time to time, both informally and formally, in response to member needs. They invite your suggestions on how to develop the programme and all contributions are welcome.
Membership is free of charge.
We look forward to continuing to work with the Bristol Robotics Lab to promote the Robotics capabilities in the Bristol and Bath city region.
If you are interested in joining the network, running an event or want to find out more check out the networks website: www.westofenglandroboticsnetwork.org, or follow them on Twitter: @RoboticsWoE
