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.

STFC key in enabling today's high resolution MRI scanners

STFC key in enabling today’s high-resolution MRI scanners: STFC played a major role in enabling today’s high-resolution MRI scanners, which are the result of over 70 years of research. This is a key example of how fundamental research can contribute significantly to socio-economic benefits, but can take a long time to be realised.

UK reaps significant rewards from CERN membership

UK reaps significant rewards from CERN membership: A recent independent evaluation, which was able to monetise some of the benefits to the UK of membership of CERN, concludes that in the past decade the UK participation in CERN science has delivered a financial return close to investment and brought additional exceptional benefits in terms of science, society, and innovation.
