Mid-range facilities strategy

EPSRC defines a mid-range facility as a research facility which provides resources that are of limited availability to UK researchers for one of several reasons including:

  • The relative cost of the kit
  • Dedicated kit in every University is not needed
  • Particular expertise is needed to operate the kit or interpret the results or
  • Progress is enhanced by sharing information or software.

EPSRC support a range of mid-range facilities, across the portfolio.
