International Business Opportunities

Member News 25th February 2019

Every year there are hundreds of opportunities for UK companies to supply the international science facilities in which the UK is a member. The market is huge – CERN alone spend £350M every year on products and services – and the facilities have a broad range of requirements from off the shelf products to high tech bespoke items.

The STFC Business Opportunities team provides free assistance to make sure that UK companies are aware of all relevant opportunities and that they have all the support they need to make successful bids. This support includes:

  • A database where companies can register to receive tender notifications (by sector) from the facilities (most opportunities are not publicly available).
  • Targeted events and site visits to link UK companies with key staff from the facilities.
  • Help and advice on working with the facilities and the tender process.

Further information is available on our website: www.stfc.ukri.org/tender

Or if you would like to speak to one of the team please email: tenderopportunities@stfc.ukri.org

Please note, to be eligible for our help companies must be established in the UK to provide services or manufacture in the UK to provide supplies (products must undergo the last major manufacturing change in the UK).

The full list of facilities covered by the team is: CERN, ESO, ESRF, ESS, FAIR, ILL, SKA and European-XFEL.
