Boulby Underground Laboratory Workshop

What would you do with access to the UK’s most unique science and technology facility, located 1.1km beneath the coast of North East England?

The Harwell Space Cluster is supporting workshops, run by the Satellite Applications Catapult, to engage potential users of Boulby Underground Laboratory, a multi-use facility operated by the Science and Technology Facilities Council (UKRI-STFC) with the support of the ICL UK.

This workshop on Thursday 29th February will be run in parallel at Harwell and NETPark and would be of particular interest to potential users engaged in (but not limited to):

  • Robotics in remote or extreme environments
  • Astro/particle physics (inc. neutrino physics and dark matter detection)
  • Astrobiology or geology

Deadline to complete registration form is 12pm on Monday 19th February

Boulby offers clean lab space along with a dusty environment for all kinds of activities ranging from robots or technology R&D, to low background astroparticle physics (dark matter searches and more) and studies of geology/geophysics, climate, the environment, planetary exploration technology development, life in extreme environments on Earth and beyond.
