Hartree Centre Commercial Beneficiary Outcomes Report
Publication date: January 2022
We commissioned independent research to track and explore the outcomes and benefits that our commercial customers have experienced from working with us on their research and innovation projects.This work aimed to capture data and evidence to help us further understand the value the Hartree Centre contributes to the organisations that we collaborate with, as well as to the wider economy and society.
Client surveys and interviews form a key part of our ongoing programme of monitoring and evaluation to support continuous improvement. The key findings from this report are based on 31% of past user organisations engaging in commercial projects completed up to the end of January 2021). Individual responses to the survey remain confidential (quotes included are pre-approved), so we have prepared an aggregated public version of the report and an infographic to highlight the key findings.
Hartree Centre Phase 1 & 2 Baseline Evaluation Report
Publication date: October 2018
In 2017, we commissioned an independent baseline impact evaluation of our first four years of operation (2013-2017) to explore the early benefits to UK industry and the economy. This study is part of a larger body of work required by UK Research and Innovation and the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to properly evaluate facilities and programmes across the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC).
We commissioned our baseline study to ensure that we are ahead of the game in terms of evaluating our work. It forms the start of a long term measurement and evaluation process which will continue to highlight and record the benefits of the work that we do.
