EPSRC funding to University of Southampton tops £100 million for the first time

01.08.2005


The level of current funding from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to the University of Southampton has topped the critical £100 million mark for the first time.



Southampton currently has a grant income of £102,670,666 in EPSRC research funding across a total of 165 individual grants. The Russell Group University stands third in the Council’s portfolio of funded organisations ahead of Oxford University, and behind Cambridge and Imperial which take first and second place respectively.

Of the top three in the EPSRC funding table, Southampton is the highest per grant earner, with an average of £622,246 per grant. It is also highest per grant earner of the 19 major research-intensive universities which make up the Russell Group.


Earlier this year Southampton was the only university to receive two of the new batch of EPSRC Portfolio Partnerships, securing over half the £22 million funding awarded in that round. Two top research teams working in NanoPhotonics and Photonics secured funding worth over £11 million between them.

Professor Joe Hammond, Dean of the University’s Faculty of Engineering, Science and Mathematics, comments: ‘The University of Southampton’s great success in attracting funding reflects the leading research standing of the Faculty of Engineering, Science and Mathematics. A particularly pleasing aspect is the increasing volume of cross-disciplinary research, which is a pay-off from removing any barriers to co-operative working. This is exemplified by the University leading four highly prestigious Basic Technology programmes, its Life Sciences Interfaces and Nanoscience initiatives, and its partnerships with other universities.’

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
