There are multiple routes and business models through which STFC can work to create value with our external partners and stakeholders, exploiting our research, facilities, skills and technologies
The following success stories illustrate just some examples of how this continues to be achieved across the STFC landscape:
Entocycle produces a cost-effective and environmentally friendly protein source for animal feed, made entirely from insects.
From health and wellness to diabetes and wound care, Nanoflex’s highly sensitive and accurate sensors enable the production of powerful healthcare technologies that help improve lives.
Utilising space technology to assist global sustainability goals, Deep Planet applies satellite imagery and data to provide insights to make the world a better place.
Challenging the perception that space technologies are cumbersome and slow, Open Cosmos makes it possible for companies to test new technologies and apps in space, from as little as £500k, and launch within 10 months.
Every year microorganisms spoil millions of tonnes of food. Some food-borne microorganisms cause an annual toll of half a million food poisoning cases in the UK. A new plasma device produced with STFC follow on funding helps remove this threat to our food supply.
Scientists have developed the most sensitive Micro Electromechanical gravity Sensor (MEMS) ever.
Whether its carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from power stations, methane (CH4) leaks from natural gas wells or carbon credits, greenhouse gases (GHGs) keep hitting the headlines.
Applying the Hartree Centre’s world-class high performance computing (HPC) capabilities to the field of ocean hydrodynamics modelling is reinforcing the UK’s position at the frontier of ocean science.
Big data and data analytics solutions provided by the Hartree Centre and partner IBM enabled Democrata to use open data to predict the presence of ancient remains on construction sites.
The Hartree Centre’s on-demand high performance computing (HPC) service enCORE, delivered by OCF, enabled small engineering consultancy QED Naval to run complex simulations four times faster than using in-house systems.
