It is well documented that robotics clusters, groups of regionally localized robotics companies, enthusiastic investors, universities and research institutions, and other supporting organizations, act as facilitators and accelerators for robotics innovation, new business formation, job creation and regional wealth generation.
At RoboBusiness 2022, which takes place Oct. 19-20 in Santa Clara, Calif., a panel featuring representatives from various robotics clusters will describe how clusters support robotics companies and robotics communities, and by extension, career opportunities.
For companies developing robotics solutions, as well as individual engineers, awareness and understanding of the outsized role robotics clusters play in the growth of the overall robotics sector, particularly as it relates to business planning and partnership opportunities, is critical. Topics covered in the panel will include:
- Global robotics clusters
- Partnering with robotics clusters
- Conclusions and recommendations
At press time, the speakers on the panel included Andra Keay, managing director of Silicon Valley Robotics, Joel Reed executive director of the Pittsburgh Robotics Network, and Joyce Sidopoulos, co-founder and chief of operations at MassRobotics. You can view the full RoboBusiness agenda here.
Earlier in 2022, these three leading robotics clusters formed the United States Alliance of Robotics Clusters (USARC). USARC supports the development, commercialization and scaling of robotics for global good by collaborating with government and industry stakeholders. The organization will develop and drive U.S. robotics mandates. The panel at RoboBusiness will also provide insights and updates about the USARC.
RoboBusiness will feature 100-plus exhibitors, 50-plus speakers, a Startup Workshop, the Pitchfire Startup Competition, networking receptions and much more. Full conference passes are $795, while expo-only passes are just $75. Academic discounts are available and academic full conference rates are $295. Register today.
RoboBusiness will be co-located with the Field Robotics Engineering Forum, a conference designed to provide engineers, engineering management, business professionals and others with information about how to successfully develop and safely deploy the next generation of field robotics systems for operation in wide-ranging, outdoor, dynamic environments. You can check out the current list of speakers, to which more will be added, here.
Also co-located with RoboBusiness is DeviceTalks West, the premier industry event for medical technology professionals, currently in its ninth year. Both events attract engineering and business professionals from a broad range of healthcare and medical technology backgrounds.
