College of Science and Engineering


The Hercules project is a University-wide collaboration at Leicester supported by EPSRC. With involvement from the Schools of Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Geology, Archaeology as well as our colleagues at Space Park Leicester (SPL), we have a broad range of knowledge and expertise to tackle a variety of interdisciplinary projects.

Hercules has a dedicated core team of professionals, with experience both in academia and industry, to support the facility. They are aimed at ensuring users get the most from the state of the art equipment and allowing them to focus on the question in hand.


The project is lead by a group of academics from the College of Science and Engineering.


We are further supported by institutes and businesses across the country, collaborating to produce world-class, impactful research. We are always open to discussion with new academic and industrial partners, please get in touch via if you would like to find out more.
