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: Spider silk key to new bone-fixing composite

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.

Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.

Im Focus: Writing and deleting magnets with lasers

Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.

Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...

Im Focus: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...

Im Focus: Basel researchers succeed in cultivating cartilage from stem cells

Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.

Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
