Robotics@Manchester is a new initiative that aims to bring together the University of Manchester's diverse activity in robotics research.
A workshop was held on Thursday 6th September for University of Manchester staff interested in robotics research. The workshop included brief presentations from academics involved in robotics research from across the University and group discussions. The aim of the workshop was to:
i) achieve a shared awareness of the strengths and complementarity of the various projects and areas of specialisation
ii) foster collaboration among staff from different schools and faculties
iii) discuss ideas for the future UoM robotics strategy and plans for internal and external visibility of UoM robotics research.
