About us

STFC Daresbury Laboratory

The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) is one of Europe’s largest research organisations. We enable the UK’s natural sciences, computing, and engineering communities to continue their world-leading research by working with universities, national laboratories, scientific facilities, and regional campuses, in the UK and abroad.

We love to talk about our work with the public – sharing the curiosity, excitement, and ambition that drives us to discover and understand new things and develop technologies that improve our lives.

Our science is incredible. From the infinitesimally small world of sub-atomic structure to the inconceivably vast scale of space, STFC’s scientists and engineers are tackling big questions that we know attract people to science as children and keep them asking questions throughout their lives.

Daresbury Laboratory, located in the heart of the Sci-Tech Daresbury campus, is now over 60 years old. On site you will find scientific computing, accelerator science, nuclear physics, particle physics, high powered computing and much more. We can’t wait to see you on site and show you some of the world-leading science and research which is happening right here.

STFC is one of the nine research councils within UK Research and innovation.
