About the Portal

UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) was commissioned by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to develop the first national research and innovation infrastructure roadmap. The programme uncovered around 800 infrastructures available to UK researchers and innovators. InfraPortal is an interactive website that showcases these infrastructures. Currently it focuses on those infrastructures that are accessible to external researchers and receive some public funding. We recognise the important contribution that industry and charities also make to the research and innovation infrastructure landscape and broadening the scope of the portal to infrastructures funded from other sources is being considered for the future.

InfraPortal is a dynamic resource that is continually being populated. For it to be sustainable and trusted, the information it contains must be complete and up-to-date. We check all new entries comply with our criteria and ensure existing ones are updated by asking infrastructure managers to verify their data annually. We display the date when entries were last updated and we remove entries that have not been verified in more than two years.

InfraPortal provides a snapshot of information about each infrastructure and signposting to enable you to access the infrastructure’s own website. UKRI is not responsible for the accuracy of the content provided directly by infrastructure managers.

If you have an infrastructure that you would like featured in InfraPortal that is externally accessible and receives some public funding, please use the links in the top right corner of the website to create an account.

InfraPortal has been developed by UK Research and Innovation using open source platforms.
