Annual funding allocations

Each Spring the Government provides guidance to Research England confirming the funding available to us for the coming financial year. This guidance identifies the policies and priorities that underpin our approach to funding.

In the light of the 2018-19 guidance, we have set budgets for recurrent grant and funding for national facilities and initiatives for the 2018-19 academic year, as announced in the ‘Funding for higher education institutions for 2018-19’ Circular letter – RE-CL-2018-01
