UKRI STFC Tender Opportunities Service

STFC, part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), funds international science facilities on behalf of the UK. As part of this, STFC provides free assistance to help UK companies access the tender opportunities at these facilities.

Opportunities exist in two main categories – supplies and services. For the purposes of registering for STFC’s assistance in accessing the opportunities, supplies and services are defined as follows:

  • Services: provision of activities to be carried out on-site by contracted personnel
  • Supplies: all other opportunities.

To be eligible for STFC’s support, the following criteria apply:

  • For supplies, a company must manufacture in the UK, or the products must undergo their last major transformation (including components and sub-assemblies) within the UK.
  • For services, a company must be established in the UK

If you are not sure whether your company is eligible, or if you would like to discuss the last major transformation, then please contact us.

To register your interest, please select the ‘Registration’ option above. Companies are encouraged to identify a central point of contact who can represent a company’s entire offering; however more than one person can register per company.
