19 June 2018 – Webinar – ISCF Competition: Robotics and AI Systems for Extreme Environments

Date: 19 June 2018

Time: 09:00-11:00

Location: This event will be live streamed via webcast

Join KTNUK at InnovateUK on this webinar and learn more about an ISCF competition to develop Robotics and AI systems for extreme environments.

As part of the multi-billion pound Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, the government will invest in a robotics and AI in extreme environments Super Challenge with the aim of taking humans out of dangerous, harsh or extreme environments. KTN is inviting businesses to one of three briefing events in Glasgow, Manchester and London to find out more about the £15m competition which includes a 5-day residential workshop to develop collaborative proposals for R&D projects.

Innovate UK, as part of UK Research and Innovation, will invest up to £15 million from the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF) in business led collaborations to develop robotic and artificial intelligence systems that remove humans from infrastructure inspection, maintenance and repair in extreme environments.

The goal is to create robotics and artificial intelligence (RAI) technologies and systems that make unmanned operation the standard approach in areas such as off-shore energy, nuclear energy, mining and space.

In this competition individuals can apply, on behalf of an organisation, to take part in a 5-day residential workshop called the Innovation Lab from 10 to 14 September 2018. The attendees will work together to develop collaborative proposals for research and innovation projects.

Following the Innovation Lab there will be 3 weeks for the emergent collaborations to finalise proposals prior to formal submission and assessment. Final projects are expected to start in January 2019 and be completed prior to March 2021.
