About the database
The database was developed as part of the Research Equipment Use and Sharing Project whose primary aim was to:
- encourage collaboration and shared use of research facilities and equipment within Oxford, and
- to help researchers when considering developing grant applications (including where the Research Councils require an assessment of existing assets).
The database holds information on equipment over £25k and documents the department and location, whether a piece of equipment is shareable or not, the technical specification (including modifications and limitations), availability, access, restrictions and a website link where available. In addition each piece of equipment has been classified under a category and sub-category listing.
More information about Research Facilities and Equipment can be found on the Research Support Website.
