The Robotics Business Review, a national robotics media outlet and sibling publication to the Robot Report, is seeking applications for the prestigious RBR50 Innovation Awards! The winners will be announced at the 2020 Robobusiness conference (June 23-24 in San Jose, CA). Winners will also receive media coverage throughout the event.

Expanded Approach

The 2020 RBR50 will not be determined by company size, maturity, or sales figures. Nor will awards be limited to certain vertical market segments. This approach is intended to focus more on innovation in all forms.

This year, the editors of Robotics Business Review are taking a more expansive approach to the RBR50 list. This year’s selections will illustrate how multiple types of innovation – technological, business, market, and investment – act in confluence to accelerate robotics sector growth.

The solicitation and selection process for the 2020 RBR50 has been broadened to also recognize transformative innovation from governmental and private business research, development, and investment groups, as well as technology, product, and services providers.
