MassTLC Releases Robotics Report

At our Annual Meeting, we released a report on the robotics sector entitled, “Achieving Global Leadership: A Roadmap for Robotics in Massachusetts.” The report, which was made possible through the support of the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative’s John Adams Innovation Institute, outlines a growing robotics sector that generates close to $1 billion in sales and employs over 2,500 Massachusetts residents in over 80 companies and a dozen academic research labs.

The report lays out a vision for the growth of the sector in Massachusetts. We are grateful for the leadership and support that Governor Deval Patrick has provided and look forward to working with him, and our colleagues at the Mass Technology Collaborative, as we implement the key recommendations made in this report.

You can view the report online at http://76.12.40.240/roboreportfinal.pdf. Also see Mass High Tech’s article “MassTLC report: Robotics growing in Mass.”
