Engineers from the Bristol Robotics Laboratory will deliver this free two-day workshop, which provides a practical introduction to the topic of industrial robotics. Whatever your level of experience or ability, you will have the chance to get ‘hands-on’ with our robot arms, gaining insight into different hardware options and operating systems, while being able to question experienced technicians. Open to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in any sector from across Bristol, Bath & North East Somerset, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire, the two days take place in the RIFBristol workspace – a supportive learning environment. All SMEs are welcome, including start-ups, micros, sole traders and larger companies. The agenda provides an overview of the robotics sector, a tour of the Laboratory, and an opportunity to carry out practical tasks with three robot arms (KUKA, Universal, etc.) and associated tech (conveyer, vision system, simulation software, etc.).

This week BIG are launching the first in a new series we are calling: ‘Bristol Troublemakers‘ at the Runway space at UoB. Join them for a relaxed evening of story-telling and networking while they give Bristol’s innovators the opportunity to share their personal stories.
If you haven’t heard of BIG – they are called the Bristol Innovators Group and are a great contact group to share learning about innovation practices, from sectors, communities and cities. We want to benefit people and organisations in Bristol, UK. They also have a group discussing children’s schooling and alternative options, so well worth looking into on their LinkedIn page and twitter account Follow or Tweet usJoin our LinkedIn Group

To mark the occasion, the BioTrib EU European Training Network, the School of Mechanical Engineering (University of Leeds) and the IMechE BioMedical Engineering Division (BmED) in Yorkshire have teamed up to bring you an online event – with presentations and panel discussions from a range of leading women working across engineering within Yorkshire.
There’s a lot going on this week, from Bristol Data Week with the Jean Golding Institute, London Tech week which seems to involve half of the government and tv presenters and lots of robotics coming to town. We’re sure we’ve missed some stuff but hopefully, we’ve found some of the highlights for you!
Bristol Data Week 2022
