We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.
If you would like to be involved in its development let us know.

Royal Observatory Edinburgh

The Royal Observatory Edinburgh (ROE) is a historic site which combines three organisations - the UK Astronomy Technology Centre (UK ATC), an establishment of the Science and Technologies Facilities Council; the Institute for Astronomy (IfA), which is part of the University of Edinburgh; and the ROE Visitor Centre, which is run by the ATC, but co-ordinates the outreach work of both UK ATC and IfA. The ROE is unique in combining on a single site astronomical research, forefront technology, teaching, public outreach, and a rich historical heritage.

The ROE Trust is a registered charity which acts to protect and showcase the heritage of the ROE, and to develop projects connected with public interest in Astronomy.
