Applications will have an innovation focus with technology coming from work previously or currently funded by the STFC core science programme (nuclear physics, particle physics & particle astrophysics, astronomy & space science, and accelerators & computing in support of these). The application of the science that STFC supports can be applied to a much wider range of sectors/markets, so we would welcome applicants who have expertise in a range of market sectors.
