Our lab and testing facilities are key to our teaching, research and collaborative work with our industry and business partners.

Our ongoing investment in new labs and testing facilities gives our students an excellent experience. They benefit from hands-on experience with industry-standard equipment and techniques. Through investment, we're helping our researchers find new solutions to pressing issues facing society and the planet.

We're already seeing the benefits of investment. Our lab and testing facilities played a key role in recent research successes at the University, such as the ground-breaking development of a plastic-eating enzyme in our biophysical laboratories.

We've developed strong collaborative partnerships with business through our laboratories and testing facilities – such as our SAP Next Generation business software lab, our UPGEL network of science and technology laboratories, and our Institute of Marine Sciences, which offers sample gathering, testing, and consultancy services to industry and government clients.

Our close partnerships with research centres and businesses allows us to offer students and researchers access to several off-campus labs and testing facilities – including our Environmental Technology Field Station, the Harwell Science and Innovation Centre in Oxfordshire, and the particle accelerator at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility in Grenoble, France.
