  • support technology development addressing current and future challenges facing the particle physics, astronomy and nuclear physics (PPAN) community by working in partnership with industry
  • fund commercialisation, technology readiness level 5 to 7, developed from STFC PPAN funded research in partnership with industry

The PPAN community is defined as particle physics, particle astrophysics, astronomy, nuclear physics, accelerator physics, solar and planetary science, and computing that underpins these areas.

The schemes are designed to facilitate the transfer of STFC PPAN funded research into an industrial setting.
