The Science Shop is an initiative run jointly by Queen’s University Belfast (QUB) and University of Ulster (UU).
We work with community organisations who want research carried out and with students who need to complete a project as part of their degree, seeking to make a match between the two.
There is no fee associated with your involvement with the Science Shop. However, if students are likely to incur additional costs through carrying out the project, we may ask you to make a small contribution if necessary.
Why is it called The Science Shop?
The Science Shop isn't an actual shop, it originates from the original Dutch ‘wetenschapswinkel’ where science is translated as knowledge. We have retained the name because we are part of an international network of Science Shops based mainly in Universities and supported by the European Commission.
