Get support for your project


Find research and innovation infrastructure to support your work

When you’re planning your project you might find that you need to use collections, equipment or facilities that you don’t own or have access to.

You can look to other organisations who might be able to grant you access.

Where to find resources

Large research and innovation organisations across the UK have services to allow you to book access to their resources.

A good place to start your search is UKRI’s infrastructure portal, where you can find a range of research and innovation infrastructures.

This includes:

  • large-scale physical research facilities, institutes, labs and campuses
  • equipment and instruments including synchrotrons, research ships, scientific satellites and ‘living labs’
  • technologies and e-infrastructures such as data and computing systems and communication networks
  • access to knowledge-based resources including scientific, cultural and artistic collections and archives.

Search the UKRI InfraPortal to find hundreds of research and innovation infrastructures.
