About

The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) is a world-leading multi-disciplinary science organisation with the goal of providing economic, societal, scientific and international benefits to the UK and the World.

STFC provides world class scientific facilities at two campuses based around Daresbury Laboratory, part of Sci-Tech Daresbury and Rutherford Appleton Laboratory at Harwell in Oxfordshire.

Part of Research Councils UK, STFC is funded by the government to support distinct but interrelated functions:

  • Support for universities
  • Scientific, large-scale facilities
  • National campuses: to promote academic and industrial collaboration and translation of research to market through direct interaction with industry
  • Inspiring and Involving: encouraging wider take-up of STEM subjects in school and future life (science, technology, engineering and mathematics)

It maximises the impact of its research and technology by providing industry and academia with access to a broad range of scientific capabilities, technical expertise and business support services.
