The National Nuclear User Facility for Hot Robotics (NNUF-HR) is an EPSRC-funded facility to support UK academia and industry to deliver ground-breaking, impactful research in robotics and artificial intelligence for application in extreme and challenging nuclear environments.

Through Hot Robotics, industry and researchers can hire robotics equipment to research and develop technological solutions to decommissioning, radiation mapping and monitoring structural integrity.

This presentation will be delivered by the Hot Robotics consortium: University of Bristol, University of Manchester, UKAEA and the National Nuclear Laboratory and it will cover:

What equipment and capabilities are available
How to access equipment
How to apply for the Funded User Access Scheme
