A new £100 million round of the UK Research Partnership Investment Fund (UKRPIF) has been launched today.

Established in 2012, UKPRIF has so far awarded £900 million to 53 projects across the UK. The money is available to universities for infrastructure and capital projects that underpin excellent research. For every £1 received from the UKRPIF, universities must attract a further £2 from non-public sources.

UKRPIF invests in the future of the country’s research creating partnerships around the development of large-scale research infrastructure. Once built, these pioneering, state-of-the-art facilities enable the universities and their partners to develop the answers to some of today’s biggest research challenges.

The closing date for intention to submit forms being returned to UKRI is midday on Thursday 4 August 2022. The funding will start in April 2023.

Further details of the latest round of UKRPIF funding are now available on the SFC website.
