Knowledge Networks: London and the Ox-Cam Arc

University of Oxford’s Beecroft Building provides world-class research facilities for experimental and theoretical physicists consolidating their varying requirements into a single centre of excellence. The building is designed to facilitate sensitive experiments that will advance the University’s research into areas such as quantum science and technology and the fundamental laws of nature. The environmental and anti-vibration performance of the high specification laboratories is amongst the best globally. The design transforms the way the department works, encouraging two separate disciplines to share an environment far more akin to a modern workplace than an institutional research facility.
