The University of Salford and NERIC

Currently undergoing transformational change, The University of Salford is positioning itself at the leading edge of higher education institutions in this country.

We are developing our new North of England Robotics Innovation Centre (NERIC) alongside that.

NERIC will be an internationally acclaimed research and innovation ‘go-to' facility and provider of Robotics / AI solutions for SMEs; housing robotics, manufacturing labs, a healthcare robotics laboratory, an industrial collaboration space and a smart mobility laboratory and will serve as a hub for the University of Salford's robotics and automation specialists who are looking to work with SMEs around the country to provide solution development, design, testing and validation of digital innovation.

Disciplines covered by the development will include robotics for intelligent infrastructure; digital automation and supply chain improvement; and health, wellbeing, and integrated care technologies.

We will focus on the needs of SMEs, providing the facilities, expertise and equipment, to help introduce new technologies in innovative ways.

The Centre will look to develop solutions to problems that can be matured for everyday use - technologies that become ubiquitous, an essential part of how we all work and live.
