There is now just over one week left to enter the first-of-its-kind event celebrating innovation and achievement across the robotics and automation sectors: the Robotics & Automation Awards!
Be sure to enter now to avoid missing out! The inaugural Awards will bring industry and innovation together to form the major new event for robotics and automation professionals.
Organised by Robotics & Automation Magazine, and in affiliation with Robotics and Automation exhibition, the inaugural Robotics & Automation Awards will highlight outstanding applications of robotic or automated systems throughout the value chain of a range of key industries.
A panel of 20 c-suite industry experts and leading academics have signed up to judge this year’s entrants, signalling the Awards’ commitment to recognising those at the forefront of innovation.
Entries will officially close on 1 August 2023, so be sure to apply before then!
The impressive line-up of 25 categories that will be celebrated on the night covers a range of key sectors, including:
- R&D (two categories)*
- Artificial Intelligence
- Cleaning & Sanitation
- Food & Beverage
- Best New or Small Company*
- Industrial Robotics
- Industry 4.0
- Packaging Automation
- Young Innovator of the Year*
- Inspiring the Next Generation*
- Extreme Environments
*Entrants do not need to apply with an end-user partner
Those interested in entering the Robotics & Automation Awards can do so by visiting the awards entry page on the official event website. A detailed list of entry criteria and categories can be found on the categories page.
The entry criteria for the Robotics & Automation Awards varies slightly depending on the category, though most categories can only be entered by OEMs, suppliers, system integrators and other solution or service providers on the condition they apply with an end-user partner. End-user partners are customers or buyers of solutions with which a supplier has worked in the past two years.
Those entering must demonstrate how their implementation of a robotic or automated system has led to measurable organisational, sector or wider societal benefits. There are four categories to which applications can be made without an end-user partner: R&D – Project, R&D – Facility, Best New or Small Company, Young Innovator of the Year and Inspiring the Next Generation.
The ceremony itself will be held this autumn at De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms on 31 October and the shortlisted finalists will gather for a drinks reception, three-course dinner and entertainment – followed by a dazzling ceremony where trophies will be handed out to the winners.
On the launch of the Robotics & Automation Awards, Ursula O’Sullivan-Dale, editor of Robotics & Automation Magazine, said: “I’m very proud to announce the launch of this brand-new, first-of-its-kind event, which promises to be an unmissable celebration of the best of the best to found in these innovative industries.
“The Robotics & Automation Awards already has strong foundations through its affiliation with the industry-leading Robotics and Automation exhibition and Robotics & Innovation Magazine, and I can’t wait to see it grow independently, too.
“What’s unique about the Robotics & Automation Awards is that it will bring together a diverse array of businesses, organisations, institutions and professionals working with robotics and automation and highlight the hard work and dedication of end-users, solution providers and research institutions alike.”
