Mimas is an organisation of experts. Our role is to support the advancement of knowledge, powering world-class research and teaching. Technology is at the heart of everything we do.
As a nationally designated data centre, we host a significant number of the UK’s research information assets. But our core expertise is building applications that enable a wide range of users to make the most of this rich resource – from students and researchers working with census data to investigate social inequalities, to scientists using satellite imagery to survey and protect our environment.
We have a longstanding relationship with JISC, developing services that support teaching, learning and research – and strong connections with research councils, especially the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).
We also have partnerships with commercial groups, universities and colleges, government agencies, and national libraries and archives.
