Facilities and resources - EPSRC


Using EPSRC facilities and resources

Find the facility or resource you need, and check how to use it.

You do not always need EPSRC funding to use EPSRC’s facilities and resources. Some are also available to businesses, organisations and researchers without EPSRC funding.

If you’re applying for EPSRC research funding

Discuss your research proposal with the facility or service you want to use before submitting your application. You usually need confirmation that you can use the facility or resource. You might also need a technical assessment that includes a costing for the value of using the facility or resource, to include in your application.

Check the funding application for more information about including facilities in your application.

If you want to include tier two services in your application, you need to discuss your research proposal with EPSRC before applying.
