ISPE’s Robotics Applications of the Year Awards is a new annual award program that recognizes innovative applications of robotics technologies in laboratories and production sites. RAYA is meant as a platform to accelerate the utilization of modern robotics in our industry. This is not only about freeing workplaces from ergonomic challenges and mindless tasks and thus making them more attractive, separating product and people even better, but also increasing availability, efficiency, and quality.
