With Robinson causing controversy by removing the likes of Richie Gray and Ross Ford for the remainder of the Magners League campaign, relations between the regions and Murrayfield are frosty at best.
But Robinson insists Scotland's success at international level goes hand in hand with Glasgow and Edinburgh's fortunes in the Magners League, and believes Bradley is the man to take the Gunners forward.
"Michael is his own man and he's got to create his own identity for Edinburgh. That's what is important in the whole of the pro game," he said.
"Michael will be running the Edinburgh side but, from my perspective as Scottish coach, we are looking for Scottish coaches to come and work with us all the time. We're looking at what is the best for the national side.
"He had a clear vision for moving Edinburgh forward.
"It's important that we understand where Edinburgh is and that it is a really good squad full of international rugby players, and we wanted somebody able to lead that team with a clear vision of how to move it forward to create a very good team spirit amongst the whole squad and give it its own identity. Michael was very clear about how he was going to achieve that.
"He and I talked at length about rugby and the development of rugby, and how we saw Scottish rugby moving forward, and I think that partnership is going to be really strong between us.
"We're lucky in the fact that we're able to develop those relationships (between national and pro team coaches) because we're small as a union, and I'm looking forward to growing that further. We've coached against each other on many occasions and I'm now looking forward to coaching with him."
