Research England funds for research and knowledge exchange - Research England


Types of funding

Research England administers the funds that support research and knowledge exchange in the UK’s universities and other higher education institutions.

We do this through:

  • formula-based funding, which is allocated annually
  • competitive funding, which institutions apply for and we award on a one-off basis
  • funding for national facilities and initiatives
