By its nature, relatively short-term performance monitoring cannot be expected to provide a full picture of the broader economic and societal benefits our organisation supports. We therefore carry out evaluation studies on our longer-term impacts.
The following studies and reports illustrate this range of impacts and have been carried out either by or in collaboration with key stakeholders.
Since the 1970s, STFC and Oxford Instruments have developed a mutually beneficial relationship, building on scientific discoveries and their industrial application to create technological benefits for both organisations, and creating impact for the UK’s economy and society.Download PDF
