HEFCE closed at the end of March 2018. The information on this website is historical and is no longer maintained.

This investment is intended to maintain and improve the world-class research carried out by our universities by investing in essential infrastructure and attracting investment from outside the public sector.
In administering the fund, we will work with the other UK funding bodies, higher education institutions and other partners, such as business, charities and donors, to attract substantial investment in research facilities. This will help maintain the international position of our universities and the wider research base.
