Higher Education: Coventry

Volume 494: debated on Monday 22 June 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills what funding his Department plans to provide to universities in Coventry for research in (a) medicine, (b) history, (c) English and (d) modern foreign languages in 2009-10. (278931)

HEFCE block grant research funding allocations for 2009-10 for the university of Coventry and university of Warwick are shown in the tables that follow. These show allocations of funding awarded in relation to each unit of assessment submitted at the last Research Assessment Exercise. Once calculated, the funding is awarded as a block grant and Higher Education Institutions have the freedom to choose where to invest this funding—and need not spend it in the disciplines that “earned” it.

In addition, BIS funds research through the research councils. These largely fund on the basis of competitively selecting projects through peer review.
