Press/Media: Expert comment

Release date: 16/11/2017

Description

Another top 10 institution that saw a big increase in funding was the University of Manchester, which brought in £63.7 million, compared with £40.7 million last year. Collette Fagan, Manchester’s vice-president for research, said that the growth in funding success could be attributed in part to a few big grants secured from the Global Challenges Research Fund.

Manchester enjoyed a success rate of 29 per cent, up two percentage points, a marker that Professor Fagan said “reflects our strategic approach which supports collaborative, interdisciplinary and international team-building at all career stages”.
