Thanks sincerely on behalf of the RRS22 committee to every applicant, participant, and audience member who took to time to share their passion for robotics. We wish you all the best in your robotics endeavors.

As a volunteer run endeavour in it’s second year, there is still plenty of room for improvement. On reflection, this year’s event had greater enthusiasm and participation from the community, despite a smaller audience during the livestream. The RRS committee is aware of this, and will be making strategy changes to ensure that RRS2023 justifies the effort put in by everyone. I will note that the positive feedback this year has been wonderful, a few people went out of their way to express how much they enjoyed this year’s event, the variety of speakers and the passion of the community. We’re confident that next year’s event we will be able to iron out the kinks and run a brilliant event for an audience worthy of the talent on display.
