Funding for national facilities and initiatives - Research England

We allocate a small proportion of our total funding to:

  • support special programmes
  • promote specific policies
  • contribute towards additional costs that are not recognised through our recurrent funding methods.

For example, the museums, galleries and collections fund supports museums and galleries in the higher education sector that have research significance beyond their home HEP.

For a full list of recipients, see our website.

Funding for national facilities and initiatives also supports work commissioned from some sector bodies, such as Jisc, which funds development and champions the use of digital technologies in UK education and research.

For more information, read our guidance on how we fund higher education providers.
