Science to Industry (S2I)

The S2I programme gives companies access to world-class large-scale research facilities.

Access world-class facilities

Gain Expert Help

Grow your business

Use innovative technologies


The goal of the S2I Centre is to link Midlands businesses to the facilities and capabilities of the Science Technology Facilities Council (STFC), as well as the University of Birmingham and Manufacturing Technology Centre. By raising awareness of the scientific and manufacturing capabilities of these organisations S2I aims to drive innovation and productivity in the region. 

We are keen to learn about the challenges faced by industry, especially manufacturing SMEs, and how our combined expertise can help respond to these. Long-term collaborations may well lead to accessing the Bridging for Innovators (B4I) programme, a £2b government fund designed for approaching complex product, manufacturing or process performance issues.
