Who we are
The Science and Engineering South Consortium (SES) is formed by the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, Southampton, Imperial College London, Queen Mary University of London, King’s College London, and University College London. The consortium works with other centres of research excellence in the UK and around the world.
Access to high-value research equipment and expertise are common challenges across academic disciplines. By pooling demand and resources in the science and engineering communities, access to a wider range of equipment and expertise can be obtained that could not be justified or supported by the universities if they acted alone, enabling researchers to achieve things that would otherwise be impossible.
