We continually invest in our state-of-the art resources and facilities. These allow our researchers to break new ground, and lead to fruitful collaborations with a wide range of business and academic partners.
Many of these resources are available for hire, allowing our collaborators access to highly trained staff and equipment. These research facilities can be booked through iLab.
Queen Mary also contributes to the RCUK-backed equipment sharing database equipment.data.
The list below is a sample of what we can offer our students, staff and external partners.
