Scientific funding secured for North East's universities

Two universities in the region have today been awarded more money to go towards their scientific funding by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.

The UK's largest funding agency for scientific research is awarding grants to Durham University and Newcastle University as two of the thirty one universities receiving funding as part of the grant system.

It is hoped that the funding will go towards bridging the gap between the scientific lab and an increasingly competitive market place.

Newcastle University is set to receive over £1.4 million in funding, with Durham University also being given over £850,000.
