This inventory is being produced as an aid for the strategic planning of the Science Faculty in relation to research and technical support. We needed to assess the current diversity and functionality of our equipment. The faculty wants to be able to start looking at lifecycle planning and how it can support it capital equipment better.
This information is now being made available so that individuals can also see what we have and hopefully enable an increase in instrument sharing and collaborative work.
This is an information sharing exercise only and, no one is obliged to lend equipment.
