A publicly accessible webpage has been developed to signpost University of Cambridge users to the Equipment Sharing Project Database and non-university members of the public directly to the National Portal.


With funders beginning to scrutinise each institution’s commitment to sharing equipment to justify future investment, the Cambridge Database and the National Portal are ways in which the University and connected institutions demonstrate their commitment to be in the best possible position to secure future funding. Providing researchers with access to a wider pool of equipment is also useful for testing potential purchases or planning future collaborative projects.


Engagement in these project ensures the University of Cambridge continues to be seen as a leader in the sector and is actively responding to directives from RCUK.
