The Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) has confirmed £200 million funding for teaching capital projects in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
A total of 73 universities and colleges will receive a share of the funding, which aims to encourage universities to develop new facilities to increase the flow of employable STEM graduates into industry.
The successful projects were decided on by a panel of former vice-chancellors, industry representatives, and estates and equalities experts chaired by Professor Lesley Yellowlees, Provost of Science and Engineering at the University of Edinburgh.
Madeleine Atkins, Chief Executive of HEFCE, said: “This funding is badly needed by universities and colleges to meet the increased interest in science and engineering. It will also ensure that students benefit from state-of-the-art equipment and laboratories, and are thereby equipped for the workplace of the 21st century.”
