Participation sought to establish need for UK National Agri-Robotics Facility

The Lincoln Institute for Agri-Food Technology (LIAT) at the University of Lincoln (UK) is organising activities aiming to establish the need for a UK National Agri-Robotics Proving Ground (NARPG) Facility.



This exciting project is funded by SBRI/Innovate UK and is using interactive activities to consult with the agri-food and robotics communities to help inform a comprehensive feasibility report which considers:


  • The current and future challenges being faced by the agricultural sector;

  • The expanding robotics expertise which could address challenges;

  • The optimum design, resources, skills and business model for an Agri-Robotics Proving Ground; and

  • The relationship between important factors such as policy, environment and society.


Are you interested in participating in any of the following activities?
