The Adaptive Behaviour Research Group (ABRG), led on this occasion by Tony Prescott with assistance from Kevin Gurney and Mark Humphries, have secured a European Union Framework 6 grant as part of a consortium of ten research groups from seven EU countries. The value of the grant is 5.8M euros over four years, of which 0.87M euros (~£600k) will come to Sheffield. The project aims to build control architectures for robots modelled on the mammalian nervous system.
