(Engineering & Technology Magazine) — The Northern Robotics Network (NRN) is designed to bring together academia and industry to help grow the robotics and autonomous systems sector in the United Kingdom’s North West region by working with partner organizations at the national level and encouraging investment to grow innovative supply chain skills in the region. The network is free to join and will organize various meetings, events, and networking for the Northern robotics community, with a focus on encouraging an interdisciplinary approach to robotics and autonomous systems. The aim is to establish the NRN as a northern powerhouse for robotics and autonomous systems, growing it and exporting the applications and products across global markets.

Paul Mort, chairman of the NRN, said, “By collaborating with our partners, academia, and commercial enterprise, we can create new economic opportunities across the UK and worldwide faster and more productively than previously possible.”
