Being there is a three-year EPSRC funded project, which brings a group of brilliant creative practitioners, technologists and academics together to explore how cutting-edge robotics can enable people to participate in public spaces, as a place to meet and share ideas.

Through a series of labs, micro-residencies, a conference, and commissions, the collaboration set out to explore how cutting-edge robotics might impact upon our experience of public space.

This research project is a collaboration between UWE’s Bristol Robotics Lab, Oxford University’s Department of Computer Science, Queen Mary’s School of Electronic Eng. & Computer Science, Bath’s CREATE Lab + Department of Psychology and Exeter’s Department of Psychology.
