Capital funding - NERC

To maintain and strengthen the excellence and impact of UK environmental science, NERC needs to invest in new technologies, equipment, infrastructure, facilities and estates.

This includes providing capital support for our existing assets as well as identifying new priorities, including those at our research centres, at universities and other research organisations.

This investment supports a broad and diverse “well-found” research base and provides opportunities to advance the UK innovation agenda.

NERC’s process for prioritising capital investment is informed by the views of the NERC community and aligns closely with our other investments in research, innovation and training.
