Join the RAICo’s team at their first Supplier's Event on Wednesday 5th July 2023 at The National Conference Centre in Birmingham!

The Robotics and Artificial Intelligence Collaboration (RAICo®) is a collaboration programme being set up by Sellafield Ltd (SL), Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA), University of Manchester and the UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA). We are in year 2 of an initial 3-year programme of technology development. It is focused on delivering and proving underlying robotics and artificial intelligence technologies that are required for effective decommissioning, as well as providing deployment opportunities to have maximum operational impact.

Using robotics and AI in hazardous nuclear decommissioning environments will provide the step-change in capabilities needed to move towards a cheaper, faster, and less hazardous set of next generation decommissioning activities.

The programme is managed by UKAEA’s Remote Applications in Challenging Environments (RACE) division.

This event will provide Industry and Academia with additional information about the opportunities arising from the RAICo programme and allow attendees to engage with RAICo programme personnel. You cannot afford to miss this unique opportunity!

Tickets can be booked until 27th of June 2023 when registration closes. Secure yours now!

The event will be hosted in an in-person format and registration is required to attend.
