University of Salford’s Robotic Centre Receives European Funding
The University of Salford has been successful in their bid to secure funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to support the creation of the UK’s newest Robotics Centre.
The £13 million North of England Robotics Innovation Centre will be part funded by the European Regional Development Fund and will house robotics, manufacturing labs, teaching space and an automotive laboratory on the ground floor.
It will serve as a hub for the University of Salford’s robotics and automation specialists who are looking to work with SMEs around the country to provide solution development, design, testing and validation of digital innovation. Disciplines covered by the development will include: robotics for intelligent infrastructure; digital automation and supply chain improvement; and health, wellbeing, and integrated care technologies.
