Student Forums’ aim is to bring together students who are interested in robotics. The Forums are intended to:

  • create a vibrant environment for knowledge exchange,
  • support students to develop new research and leadership skills, and enhance career development,
  • create a platform for networking by linking the  academic community with industry, professional bodies, governmental organisations within and outside of the UK.

The Student Forums are made up and run by student members based across the UK, including CDTs, Capital facilities and other academic institutions with research interest in robotic platforms. Activities such as workshops, seminars, competitions, outreach and other social events create a great opportunity to meet, engage and inspire people.
