£10m has been awarded to the University of Southampton to develop new world-class engineering research facilities. Outdated equipment will be replaced, with much of the money spent on marine and maritime sciences.
There will be major investment in the new buildings at the university's new Boldrewood Campus as part of government moves to inject funding into the technologies of the future.
The UK’s world-class universities are at the forefront of our economic recovery. It’s vital we do everything we can to encourage collaboration with the private sector and boost funding for research.
