Remit, portfolio and priorities - STFC


Our research portfolio and priorities

The following science challenges in frontier physics help to guide what we invest in across our research portfolio:

  • how did the universe begin and how is it evolving?
  • how do stars and planetary systems develop and how do they support the existence of life?
  • what are the basic constituents of matter and how do they interact?
