UKCRIC has a number of Infrastructure Laboratories, Urban Observatories and Modelling and Simulation facilities across the UK at its partner organisations, many of which are already available for use by academics and students as well as industry and government.
To access materials from our October 2011 Facilities Showcase, including a video of taster presentations from each facility and pdfs of all of the presentations, click here
If you'd like to use any of our facilities, it's important that you start talking to us early, to ensure we can provide the resources required for the proposed project. If you would like to enquire about using our facilities, please email us at email@example.com.
We will then arrange for you to visit the facility. We'll also discuss with you any potential intellectual property arising from the project, and put plans into place for its appropriate protection.
EPSRC-funded proposals will be given top priority for usage of the facility and accompanying equipment.
Please note that UKCRIC is not a lab service provider or an accredited analysis service.
