Dr. Mitch Pryor spoke and participated in the International Panel at  UK's Robotics week with Stephen Hart from TRACLabs and Ron Diftler who is the branch chief for robotics at NASA JSC. 

The talk was at the Royal Geographical Society at Imperial College in London. In addition, the international contingent toured facilities at multiple research hubs related to robotics in challenging environments including FAIR (space) at the University of Surrey, NCNR (nuclear) at Birmingham University, and RAIN (nuclear)  at the Culhamn Science Centre which is home to RACE and the fusion reactor JET. 

The trip strengthened relationships seeking new opportunities to collaborate internationally to address technical challenges with global impacts including space robotics, emergency response, and the decommissioning of legacy nuclear sites worldwide.
