RE•WORK are pleased to announce their first robotics-focused summit taking place on 29-30 November at the Umweltforum, Berlin.

Bio-inspired robotics is a rapidly advancing field solving engineering problems by optimising mechanisms found in nature. Three main areas of focus are biosensors, bioactuators and biomaterials, with applications ranging from industrial automation and manufacturing, to dangerous environments, healthcare and architectural design. Soft robotics and swarm intelligence are two branches within the field that are growing exponentially.

Why Attend

The RE•WORK Bio-inspired Robotics Summit is a unique opportunity to meet 200+ influential manufacturers, world-leading biomimetics researchers, entrepreneurs and software engineers. Discover how bio-inspired robotics can impact your business and network with innovators in the field.

Over the course of the 2 days attendees will hear keynote presentations and panel discussions, explore the startup showcase area and connect with international peers. The summit will discuss topics ranging from swarm robotics and collective intelligence, to soft robotics, bionics, and nanotechnology.

Previous attendees include: Rethink Robotics, Sheffield Centre for Robotics, Bristol Robotics Lab, Microsoft, Amazon Robotics, Qualcomm Ventures, Reach Robotics, Q-Bot, Terrabotics, EcoMachines Ventures and Jibo.
