Annual funding allocations

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

In the light of the 2019-20 guidance, we have set budgets for recurrent grant and funding for national facilities and initiatives for the 2019-20 academic year, as announced in the ‘Funding for higher education institutions for 2019-20’ Circular letter – RE-CL-2019-03.


How Research England allocates its funds

The ‘Guide to research and knowledge exchange funding 2019-20’ provides an introduction to our funding methods and covers:

  • the different types of funding we allocate
  • how we calculate the amount each institution receives
  • the conditions of funding and the requirements that institutions must meet to receive funding from us.
