Our Three Core Values

In an ever-changing environment, where the needs of our people are diverse, complex and unique, we strive to ensure that we stay united by our three core values, not only for a positive work culture, but for a better world.

Compass Symbol


Through our spirit of adventure, we demonstrate how transformation is made possible with bravery, curiosity, risk and exploration. Today’s scientific problems require a voyage of discovery to yield high impact results; to ultimately change the course of how we do things. We take people on an exciting and inspiring journey of scientific adventure.

Innovation Symbol


Whether through cutting-edge technology, invention or high-impact research, we are a catalyst for continuous innovation. We challenge the norm to pioneer new ways of working and thinking, with a determination to test the boundaries of possibility.  

Inclusivity Symbol


We leverage multi-discipline, cross-sectoral networks and relationships to maximise the impact of our work. Our approach is welcoming and inclusive, and this gives us a multifaceted understanding of challenges and possibilities. As a result, we are a trusted voice for sustainability and environmental advocacy. 

Our Facilities

Our spacious, state-of-the-art centre is designed to make sure team members and visitors alike have everything they need to help maximise their skills in all fields of work. Facilities at NSC are a national resource and an important aspect of its unique place in the UK research infrastructure.
