A new brand for the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) has been launched today as part of a unified identity for UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).
The new brand reflects UKRI’s vision along with the identities and remits of the nine councils that form the organisation.
UKRI will now begin a phased introduction across the organisation and the facilities it manages.
Professor Mark Thomson, STFC Executive Chair, said: “The new brand was designed to demonstrate the strong connections between the different councils of UKRI.
“This message resonates particularly strongly for STFC where our national laboratory scientific and technical staff collaborate closely with colleagues from our partner organisations, delivering a world-class programme of multi-disciplinary research. The new branding shows how we are all part of the UKRI family, with each council bringing its own unique strengths.”
UK Research and Innovation Chief Executive, Professor Sir Mark Walport, said: “UKRI has an important role to play and an important story to tell. The unified brand will help us to tell this story nationally and internationally.
“It illustrates how the organisation brings together the seven research councils, Research England and Innovate UK to deliver on our ambitions as a world-class funder, creating knowledge with impact across society and the economy.”
