National Research Facilities

EPSRC continues to fund world class facilities for the engineering and physical sciences research communities to use. Previously known as mid-range facilities, these facilities provide leading edge capabilities and technique development at a national level and/or access to European research facilities.

To reflect their importance to the research community, they will now be called EPSRC National Research Facilities, and EPSRC is encouraging more academics and industrial researchers to benefit from their capabilities. The EPSRC National Research Facilities will continue to complement the Science and Technology Facilities Council large facilities.

Information on the capabilities and services of the 12 EPSRC National Research Facilities, how to access them and the EPSRC research areas they support is available from the links on this page.
