About Us

UNICAS aims to increase awareness and sharing of equipment and expertise across the university. 

Our committee is made up of 16 academic, non-academic and technical staff from around the university.  Details of our members are below.

We meet 4 times per year to plan the delivery of themed networking events, equipment events and to manage the equipment access fund allocated by the Facilities and Equipment Management Committee.

A key part of our work is to fund collaborative research projects borne out of our sandpit events, you can read more about these and other events we organise here.
