Capital investment for physical infrastructure - Research England

Higher education providers can get additional funding to support sustainable capital investment, called the Research Capital Investment Fund.

We do this to:

  • enable high-quality research
  • support sustainable infrastructure development
  • grow higher education provider’s research capacity and capability.

They are allocated through:

  • HEI Research Capital England, which looks at your higher education provider’s research income from quality-related research funding and other sources
  • Higher Education Research Capital England, which looks at your higher education provider’s research income from the research councils.

These are formula-based funds. You do not apply for them. More information about formula capital allocation may be found on the RE website.
