Case Studies

STFC strives to  maximise the impact of our science and technology for the benefit of the UK and its people.
 
This is a vitally important at any time, but especially so now, given the challenges the UK faces to  maintain  the economy and the important role that science must play in this task.  
 

We continue to improve our approach to impact reporting.
