The host is developing robot technology, to address the long-term global decline in agriculture labour. Its initial focus was on a robot to harvest raspberries because their delicate structure means they are challenging to harvest. This was completed in 2019 which paved the way for the system to be adapted for other soft fruits and vegetables. Their technology has gained interest from leading agribusinesses, and they are now in a position to progress concept robots for other crops and poised to scale up the raspberry harvesting robot, for market.
Good spoken and written English levels are required (B2 onwards)
