North of England Robotics Innovation Centre
The new North of England Robotics Innovation Centre (NERC) will be a beacon for the University’s robotics and automation specialisms.
The £16 million facility is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund, with additional support from Research England, and will serve as a hub for small to medium-sized industries (SMEs) looking to design, test and validate innovation in this rapidly growing area.
A Centre of Digital Innovation
NERIC is due to open late 2022.
Focus areas for the facility will include robotics for intelligent infrastructure digital automation and supply chain improvement working across a range of sectors including robotics and automation, the requirements of net zero, healthcare technologies, vehicle automation and the development of smart cities.
