The funding will be allocated strategically across the EPSRC-funded areas of the University.
Skills and knowledge
Executive Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Professor Steve Holloway, said: “This investment by EPSRC will support world-class postgraduate training in science and engineering at Liverpool. It will provide students with significant skills and knowledge to equip them for their future careers, be it in research, industry, or elsewhere. It will also help us to attract additional top-class scientists from across the country and beyond. ”
David Willetts, Minister for Universities and Science, said: “This significant investment underlines the UK’s commitment to top quality postgraduate research and training. It will drive growth and help secure our future as a leading science and engineering nation, with a wealth of skilled people able to tackle global challenges, from infrastructure planning to public health.”
