Open Championship 2017

As well as support for the ongoing growth of the programme, we are currently looking for organisations to get involved with a major one-off FLL event being held in the UK in June 2017. We'll be hosting hundreds of FLL participants at a five day FLL Open Championship, in partnership with the University of Bath. This will be an international celebration of young people exploring STEM subjects, and we want to hear from organisations who feel passionately about feeding the pipeline of talent into STEM industries.

UK and Ireland Major Sponsor

The EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Intelligent Automation is a partnership between Loughborough University, Cranfield University, Rolls-Royce, Airbus, Aero Engine Controls, and the Manufacturing Technology Centre. They research ways to automate complex manufacturing tasks by evaluating the human skills and developing solutions based on this knowledge. Often this involves systems based on human-automation cooperation, where people and robots can work together safely and effectively.
