The Atlantic Facilities and Research Equipment Database (AFRED) is an open access, online, searchable database designed to increase the use of specialized research infrastructure in our region by connecting potential users with the facilities that host the equipment. The purpose of this tool is to promote increased interaction between industry, SMEs, researchers, and others involved in R&D in the region, and to provide a starting point for the development of collaborations regionally, nationally, and internationally.

The database includes brief descriptions of major pieces of research equipment available for use by external researchers, as well as contact information for you to connect directly with the host facilities.
