About us

Technology has a presence at each of STFC's national laboratories. At the UKATC in Edinburgh we focus on work in support of the astronomy programme. At Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and Daresbury Laboratory we support the particle physics and space programmes, accelerator development, and STFC's major facilities:

  • ISIS
  • Diamond
  • Central Laser Facility

We complement our STFC funding with external work for other Research Councils, government programmes, the EU, the private sector, and other research institutes, universities and facilities across the world.
