At any one time the UK ATC aims to have a variety of projects underway. In order to balance the workload whilst making efficient use of available resources, these projects are of different sizes and at any given time will be at different stages in their development.
The size and complexity of astronomical instrumentation continues to increase as astronomers progress further into the era of Very Large and Extremely Large Telescopes. As a result a large majority of the projects are done in collaboration with UK universities, international agencies and institutions and/or with industry.
