STFC is one of the UK’s seven publicly funded research councils that the Government use to fund Science. We are one of Europe’s largest multidisciplinary research organisations. We fund research into astronomy, nuclear and particle physics through grants to academics.
We manage national laboratories and research infrastructures within the UK and provide the UK subscription to international facilities such as CERN, the ESRF and ILL.
