Providing unique access to large-scale science facilities, equipment, and expertise both in the UK and internationally, the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) works collaboratively with businesses to reduce the risk surrounding innovation and enable new applications of technology in exciting and disruptive ways. By co-locating businesses alongside our facilities and expertise at 3 UK locations – Daresbury, Harwell, and Edinburgh – and catalysing this with industry cluster networks, we bring together the people who can innovate and change the world for the better.
STFC, part of UK Research and Innovation, is a world-leading multidisciplinary science organisation. Working collaboratively with academia to create an environment for UK scientific research to flourish, STFC is a national resource available to support UK businesses, from spin-outs to corporates.
Venturefest embodies what we’re all about – inspirational innovation that impacts our lives. At Venturefest we showcase and share our world-leading intellectual property, inventions, expertise and capabilities with entrepreneurs and businesses – helping to make Harwell Oxford and Oxfordshire the birthplace of high-tech companies.
